God Rejoices Over You

16 January 2022

Sermon given by the Rev. Nathan Stomberg on 2 Epiphany (1/16/2022).

There is a reason God has ordained marriage as the building block of civilization. The Rite of Christian marriage is fundamentally transformative, unifying one man and one woman in Holy Matrimony, becoming in one sense a single, more perfect person.

Christian marriage, for all its human imperfections, is the greatest representation of God’s love and joy for His people, lived out through Christ and His Church, and celebrated both temporally and eternally in the Holy Eucharist.

Readings: Isaiah 62:1-5; Psalm 96; 1 Corinthians 12:1-11; John 2:1-11
