The Baptism of Jesus

This last week was extremely tumultuous for the nation.  It turns out that Jesus’ Baptism took place in a world that was also tumultuous.  God’s love story for the world doesn’t take place in a fairy tale kingdom, but in our world, complete with political factions, social unrest, economic disparities, demons dwelling and distortions of truth.

God’s love story includes not only God’s love for this world and us, but also God’s love lived out through us for others.  Pastor Rob reflects on the incredible challenge of loving the world and loving others; this week few of our hearts were filled with love.  What do we do in such a time as this, when there is tumult in our hearts?  Pastor Rob invites us back to the waters of Baptism.
