Wine from Water Flows

Wine from Water Flows
(John 2:1-12)


Empty vessels
Strewn about
Eager anticipation
Alongside emptiness
Without

And then the Wine
Flowed
From the Water
Divine

Religion and ritual
Fade to celebration
The best saved for last
Abundance and grace
In stark contrast

  2. there nothing like God's grace... enough to make us seek a relationship not just a religion... thanks for stopping in
