Series: Reach Out & Live: First-Plymouth (20th & D)

Pastor Jim Keck

In some basic way we must all say "Yes" to life itself. Our fullness and flourishing can only flow from this essential affirmation. While many of us do not say "no" exactly, we never quite seize the power of YES to life's possibilities. This weekend Dr. Keck will explore the great miracle Jesus performed of turning water into wine. Jesus lived in a time and place that already had a very specific God of wine - Dionysius. Clearly, in this miracle Jesus is purposely portraying himself as even greater than Dionysius. It was Dionysius that represented to the Greeks an emotionally intense and full-throated YES to the joy of living. Jesus' miracle is trying to teach us the power of that ultimate affirmation.
