Irish author Samuel Beckett wrote a tragic/comedy titled, Waiting for Godot, in which the main characters Estragon and Vladimir are waiting for a man by the name of Godot to come to them. The entire play is about their waiting. They are hopeful that Godot will come as he said he would. They wait and wait. They do talk about whether Godot will, in fact, come. Time weighs on them. Estragon tries on a pair of boots that are found, commenting on what silly things they are doing to give them a sense of purpose while they wait.

We are all intimately connected as one body in Jesus. Isaiah celebrates our intimate union with our creator, describing us as the joyful bride of God. Though there had been alienation and rejection from both sides in the past, the prophet describes us as God’s delight. That connection is also emphasized in Paul’s oddly graphic description of church folks as body parts — we need each other because we are not a living, breathing body if we are somehow separated.
When Jesus visited a wedding at Cana in Galilee, he showed that human disappointments matter to him and that he would be prepared to redeem them. This is a story about a young girl's bitter disappointment when she became a bridesmaid.
