This coming Sunday is Baptism of the Lord Sunday. In the church’s liturgical calendar, we just had Christmas, where we celebrated the birth of Jesus. This was followed by Epiphany, where we remembered the mysterious Magi who visited the infant Jesus and gave him gifts. This Sunday we immediately jump from the infant to the adult Jesus, a grown 30 year old man, being baptized by John the Baptist in the Jordan River. We will ponder what that experience was like for him (see Mark 1:4-15), and what it means for our lives.
