Pastor Dick used the Wedding at Cana as his text for the morning message, reminding us of the humanity of Jesus as He celebrated with the bride and groom.  He is interested in all aspects of our lives.  Yet the miracle of turning the water into wine established His authority and power He possessed.  His first miracle!

Near the en d of the service the congregation was invited to share in the Renewal of Vows by Dick and Carole as they near their 55th wedding anniversary.  Rev. Curt Rush officiated and Linda Selinger provided the very special music for the occasion.  A cake and punch reception was held afterward.  A very happy day!
