This weekend our Church celebrates the Baptism of Jesus. It was during his Baptism that we heard a voice say: “You are my beloved Son; with you I am well pleased! Now let’s move forward 2000 years to the day of our Baptism. I can imagine Jesus saying the same thing to us on that day and my hope is that we would really want Jesus say the same thing to us today? I would like to think so but there is really only one way to know and that is if we do what Jesus spent His life doing. As we look at His life we see that He spent His life reaching out to those who needed to be reminded that they were loved. This is the challenge that is given to us. I am sure that we all know someone in our lives who feels that they do not deserve love. How are we being called to reach out to them, as Jesus did, so that they to may know that are part of God’s family?
God’s Continued Peace,
