Connie Siedler used the water into wine miracle as a basis for her message on transformation. Connie noted that there are many wedding mishap stories, including this one where the host runs out of wine. This miracle account in John 2 shows Jesus as an agent of transformation, a frequent theme in John’s gospel. In this miracle, Jesus turned something good into something better, and also turned something into something it was not. When we encounter Jesus we can’t stay as we were, said Connie, we all need change. The discussion raised questions about the intent of this miracle, and questions about what Mary expected Jesus to do. Transformation is an ongoing challenge for all; to change from something good to something better, or to change something into something it was not. [HN]
