Transforming the ordinary – Vicar’s weekly thought

Transforming the ordinary

We prayed on Epiphany Sunday that in the mess and muck of our ordinary lives, when things go wrong, when all is not as it should be, we may lift our eyes and see the light of Jesus’ star, and follow him. Our culture thinks this is most unlikely, but then did anyone think Jesus would turn water into wine either? For some reason the first disciples logged this as Jesus’ first miracle,
or sign of Jesus’ real glory. Jesus’ mother said, “Do whatever he tells you.” Really that is not a bad motto for any of us. So let’s pray for open eyes, to be listening and following, that his  transforming power may be seen in our own lives and reach those around us too.
