January 20 - Believe in Jesus. Second
Sunday after the Epiphany. Racial
Justice Day. John 2:1–11. Jesus said to
them, "Fill the jars with water." And
they filled them up to the brim. He
said them, "Now draw some out, and
take it to the chief steward." When the
steward tasted the water [it] had
become wine. Jesus did this, the first of his signs, in Cana of Galilee, and revealed his glory; and his disciples believed in him. Image: Marriage at Cana, excerpt. Giotto di Bondone (1267-1337). Public domain.

He has sent me to proclaim release to
the captives and recovery of sight to the
blind, to let the oppressed go free, to
proclaim the year of the Lord's favor."
