Epiphany 1 – The Baptism of Jesus

Now when all the people were baptized, and when Jesus also had been baptized and was praying, the heaven was opened, and the Holy Spirit descended upon him in bodily form like a dove. And a voice came from heaven, “You are my Son, the Beloved; with you I am well pleased.”

–Luke 3.21-22

  • Do you sometimes have difficulty in finding an identity for yourself? Do you find yourself struggling to understand who you are and what you want?
  • Can you think of a time when you wanted to change a habit about yourself; how hard was it, were you successful?
  • How do you understand your baptism? What do you think it means to be baptized?
  • Why do you think Jesus gets baptized?

This is another Sunday for us to get together, and it’s when we’re together that we can better practice and understand our identity in Jesus Christ. Whether you’ve got it all together or whether each day feels like a struggle God calls you beloved too. Join us Sunday at 6pm for Holy Eucharist and then stay for supper after the service. We hope to see you on Sunday.

Heavenly Father, in you we live and move and have our being: We humbly pray you to guide and govern us by your Holy Spirit, that in all the cares and occupations of our life we may not forget you, but may remember that we are ever walking in your sight; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
