7. THE TASTE OF THE GIFT
“Draw out now and take to the chief steward.”
“That which I have; even that which I do not have. Someone always needs it.” – wrote the priest-poet.
The miracle of the wedding takes place in the offering. The gift received begins to shine when it is given. The Good News of new life in Christ cannot be lived alone. One can only celebrate the transformation together, in relationships, in community. To “draw out and take” means to be for the other, to share ourselves, to taste together the joy of the new wine.
