Almighty God,
in Christ you make all things new:
transform the poverty of our nature by the riches of your grace,
and in the renewal of our lives
make known your heavenly glory;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever. Amen


Post Communion Prayer for Epiphany 2

God of glory,
you nourish us with your Word
who is the bread of life:
fill us with your Holy Spirit
that through us the light of your glory
may shine in all the world.
We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

The Readings: Isaiah 62. 1-5 or 1 Cor. 12. 1-11


GospelJohn 2. 1-11

On the third day there was a wedding in Cana of Galilee, and the mother of Jesus
was there. Jesus and his disciples had also been invited to the wedding. When the
wine gave out, the mother of Jesus said to him, ‘They have no wine.’ And Jesus said
to her, ‘Woman, what concern is that to you and to me? My hour has not yet
come.’ His mother said to the servants, ‘Do whatever he tells you.’ Now standing
there were six stone water-jars for the Jewish rites of purification, each holding
twenty or thirty gallons. Jesus said to them, ‘Fill the jars with water.’ And they filled
them up to the brim. He said to them, ‘Now draw some out, and take it to the
chief steward.’ So they took it. When the steward tasted the water that had
become wine, and did not know where it came from (though the servants who had
drawn the water knew), the steward called the bridegroom and said to him,
‘Everyone serves the good wine first, and then the inferior wine after the guests
have become drunk. But you have kept the good wine until now.’ Jesus did this, the
first of his signs, in Cana of Galilee, and revealed his glory; and his disciples believed
in him.
