Jesus is at the Wedding in Cana. A HUGE problem develops... they run out of wine! Yikes! Mary, His mother, asks Jesus to "do something" to help the situation. His first reply is, frankly, shocking! The sermon title is: "Turned Down Cold... Or Not?" based on John 2:1-11.

The Baby Jesus is now 12 years old in today's Gospel reading. After a visit to the temple in Jerusalem, He's nowhere to be found within the traveling group as they return to Nazareth.

John the Baptist is jailed. He's "good as dead" (and soon will be!). So he sends his disciples to ask Jesus if Jesus is "the One" for whom they'd been waiting or "Shall We Look for Another?" We consider this question that John and his disciples (and sometimes we!) have of Jesus. The sermon is based on Luke 7:18-28.
