Baptized for Service

This Sunday we will baptize my grandson Callen, and my message, Baptized for Service, will highlight the connection between our baptism into Christ (see Romans 6:1-14 and Galatians 3:27-29) and our calling to practice Risk-Taking Mission & Service. It has been rightly said by many that “The Church does not have a mission. The Church is a Mission.”  As those who have been baptized into Christ we are called to share his light and show his love through acts of caring and service, large and small.  Schnase writes, “Never underestimate the transforming power of small actions.  God uses caring and effective people in every circumstance to improve other people’s lives in a multitude of ways.  We are each made to serve the other.” (p.107)  Think about that!
