Real men stop and ask for help! For their honeymoon, Tim and Ellen were going to Niagara Falls, but couldn't find it. It may sound funny, but sometimes getting lost is good thing because it causes us to ask for help. While trying to find Niagara Falls, they got caught in some road construction and the detours took them in wide twenty-mile circles. Finally, on the third time around Tim saw as sign that said, "Information and Tours" and so he finally just stopped and asked for help.
But what happens to all those people who are lost and don't know where to ask for help?

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.
