Amherst Community

United Church of Christ

“I do not understand the mystery of grace - only that it meets us where we are and does not leave us where it found us. ” 

- Anne Lamott



The people of the Amherst Community Church come from a variety of religious traditions. This makes for an interesting mix! We bring our questions, our doubts, our beliefs, our criticism, our willingness to both ask questions and lean into faith in order to make our lives, and the world, a better place.

Weekly Sermon

 They Have No Wine

John 2:1-11 (NRSV)

This week’s scripture reading celebrates Jesus turning water into wine during the Wedding at Cana — one of three traditional focal points for Epiphany through which Jesus’ identity “shows forth”; the other two being the visit of the Magi and Jesus’ baptism, the Gospel readings for Epiphany and last Sunday, if you’ve been following along. Next week, we’ll look at Luke’s story of how Jesus begins his public ministry — and so this week and next make for an intriguing comparison and contrast between two accounts of how Jesus “goes public.”
