Tranquility With Tea

In the Christian telling of the first of Jesus’ miracles, it took place in Cana at a wedding reception, where the wine ‘ran out’ and at his mother’s insistence, he turned large, clay jars of water into wine. So, we might think of wine as water with a miracle and … so are we!

Early on, our ancestors recognized a robust comparison between the life cycle of vine and wine as they related to the human cycle of life. During our service, we will explore some of these analogies, reflecting on how wine is water in such a miraculous combination, that having been uplifted by the divine and blessed by the Spirit-of-the-cosmos, it becomes a unique nectar. In the same way we have been blessed and are one-of-a-kind!

Our prayerful Meditation and Contemplation will be created and offered by Sue Perrin. She serves as Minister of Ritual and Celebration for S.T.A.R.
