    Contributed by Owen Bourgaize on Nov 12, 2000
    based on 189 ratings

    The miracle of Jesus changing water into wine at Cana is a sign pointing to the new wine of the Kingdom found only by obedience to Mary’s prophetic words to the servants "do whatever he tells you".

    based on 1 rating

    A short talk given to believers. Jesus turned water into wine, thus revealing his glory and his disciples put their faith in him. What are we called to do, as agents of change in our community, that people will put their faith in Jesus too?

    Contributed by J Jeffrey Smead on Feb 9, 2010
    based on 699 ratings

    In the Scriptures "Water" is often a symbol of .the "Word of God". It is important to understand that Wine often times in Jewish literature is a reference or a symbol of joy. Do you need to be filled anew, to be filled to the brim with joy?

  • A Tale Of Two Mothers: A Mother's Day Sermon

    Contributed by Daniel King on May 21, 2018

    Eve was the mother of humankind and her disobedience to God allowed sin to enter the world. Mary was the mother of God and her obedience to God allowed salvation to enter the world. On Mother's Day, what can we learn from these two mothers?
