Baptism is something we do in church one day that takes the rest of our lives to finish.
Each year in January, we read the story of the baptism of Jesus by John in the Jordan River. This Saturday, our Holy Land travelers will be visiting the Jordan River.
Though baptism is a one-time event in our lives, in worship this weekend, I’ll invite you to focus on Remembering Your Baptism. Not necessarily your actual baptism, but rather the meaning of your baptism and the significance of it for our lives still.
The scripture (Mark 1:4-15) in a few verses covers a lot of events in Jesus’ life. The Gospel writer Mark decided to list all of these events, back-to-back. As you prepare for worship, I encourage you to reflect on these verses.
Blessings & Peace,
With winter weather upon us, first and foremost, please be safe. If the weather is bad, but worship is not cancelled, please make sure to do what is best for the safety of yourself and others. When it’s necessary to cancel worship, we’ll communicate that through various methods (email, Facebook, TV, website, etc).
