The first Sunday after Epiphany is traditionally the day when the baptism of Jesus is remembered in worship. This morning we will hear the account of that baptism from the Gospel of Luke. Baptism is an outward and visible sign of God’s inward and invisible love. At a time when climate change is threatening the water supply of many and is leading to the melting of polar ice, this story of baptism leads us to think about water and the care of creation.
And while it looks as though we’ll be getting some water in the form snow on Saturday, that shouldn’t interfere with our worship on Sunday. As always, however, check the church website or Facebook page for any changes and use caution as you drive on Sunday morning.
