Get into the spirit of your Baptism.
The Rite of Baptism is our initiation into the Christian community of the church. As bap- tized persons, we are part of the “one spirit” that makes us members of the Body of Christ and each other.
And with this gift of Baptism we have a responsibility to carry out the light and love of Christ to the world.
What does that look like? A welcome to the stranger; an embrace of an enemy; a sacrifice for the sake of another. Let the spirit of your Baptism light a fire of love under you!
Today’s Readings: Isaiah 42:1-4, 6-7 or 40:1- 5, 9-11; Acts 10:34-38 or Titus 2:11-14; Luke 3:15- 16, 21-22 (21). “I am baptizing you with water, but one mightier than I is coming . . . . He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.”
