'And what a sign! Six stone water jars each with a capacity of twenty to thirty gallons! More than a sip of glory, this is a flood, one which could supply not one, but several wedding feasts for days on end. And not cheap port, not Franzia or Manischewitz or even Barefoot, but the best wine, wine seemingly aged for centuries just for this moment, so that the steward can say to the unsuspecting groom, ‘You have kept the good wine until now.’

From the sermon: 'The baptism inaugurates that project of re-making. For we still were waiting, even when Jesus had been made incarnate in the womb of the Virgin and born into the world, we were still waiting. While shepherds and magi adored, as he grew from infancy through childhood and even into adulthood, it was still a time of waiting for the project to become active. In a way, it was still Advent, the time of preparation. But now, at the baptism of Christ, the anointed one, Messiah, the time of waiting is over. The extreme makeover has begun, not from the outside in, but from the inside out.'
