Today in Sunday School the children learned the story of Jesus’ first miracle, the changing of water into wine at the wedding in Cana (John 2:1-11). Through His first miracle, Jesus revealed Himself to be true God. God uses His Word and physical means - water, bread, and wine - to reveal to us the Jesus is our Savior. Discuss the story with your children and talk about how we are like the disciples, not sure just who Jesus is. At times, we also doubt Him and His Word. Emphasize that in His Word and Sacraments, Jesus shows us that He is the Savior, conquering our doubts with these visible means. We hear Jesus in His Word and see Him in His Sacraments.
You may pick up your 2010 Offering Envelopes located on the table in the Narthex.
LADY - Just a week after my report on Lady in the January Messenger, she had to be put to sleep on January 6th . Lady was 13.5 years old and was a joyous part not only of the Lassman family ut also here at Messiah as many of you knew her through Bible classes, Catechism classes and other events. “Church” Lady will be missed. Thank you all for your expressions of concern and support.
Pastor and Kathy.
