John 2:3 When the wine was gone, Jesus’ mother said to him, “They have no more wine.”

We all know what Jesus is going to do. He saves the day by somehow producing wine from the contents of nearby water pots. Who hasn’t hosted a gathering and feared that they were under supplied? Usually after a party or cookout or holiday dinner we are eating leftovers for an extended period of time because we got way too much to begin with. But what about our emotional and spiritual supplies. This story talks about running out of wine. In our culture we more often refer to running out of gas. Jackson Browne had a popular song that connected with many people titled “Running on Empty.” Yes, you should google it. As the pandemic wears on you may feel your reservoir drying up. At first there was adrenaline whether that came from fear or novelty or the “being in it together” nature of the event. But that was a long time ago now. Where do we go to get renewed? Hey Jesus, they (we) are out of wine. What can you do about it?
