Baptism of the Lord Sunday
Virtual Church – Online

Rev. Dr. Libby Grammer will preach a sermon entitled, “In the Beginning”
Water is a pretty abundant metaphor in Scripture. From the first chapter of Genesis with its chaotic creation waters, to the waters of Baptism that represent cleansing of sin, God has been using water to remind us that God is present in the tangible parts of this world, making something new. We are reminded on Baptism of the Lord Sunday that we are given new beginnings in water. God created the earth by taming the waters. We are born of water in a womb. We are washed in water at our baptism, the start of our journey of faith. We look back this Sunday every year at our own baptism, not because it was perfect or we were made perfect in that moment, but because we appreciate the beginning so much more when we see how far we’ve come. As one pastor said: “It takes our whole life to finish our baptism.”
