Baptism of the Lord
"God is Holding Your Life"


As we conclude a sad, painful, and frightening week for our nation, we come together to remember Jesus’s baptism and our own. We ponder Dr. John Cobb’s question, who is Jesus to us? And we ask ourselves, how will I live out my commitment to be a true follower of Jesus, the Christ?

Many of us can’t really remember our baptisms, but we remember daily that we are called to follow Jesus in caring for the least among us, and helping the lost find their way. We’re called to care for one another and also for our enemies. We’re called to do all we can to build a sustainable community, that cares for the Earth, the gift of God that nurtures each of us.

Who is Jesus? Lord, Savior, teacher, mentor, friend, guide in the way that leads to life? How we answer this question determines how we will follow. Let’s consider the needs of our world and ask, what is God in Christ asking of me in this moment, this week, this difficult year? Our world is hurting. Jesus calls us to turn toward the injustice and the pain, the joy and small acts of kindness. Together we can make a difference. We are so grateful to be able to share in worship with you.
