We celebrated the Baptism of the Lord at St. Paul’s on January 8. Here’s the music we showed on our screens before our 10 a.m. Service to help us prepare for worship.

Here’s the Gospel Reading we read at both 8:30 and 10 a.m. Services.

Here are 3 reflections on Our Lord’s Baptism.

Our Lord Jesus’ choice to be one with us, which led to his beginning his public ministry by being Baptized by John, led ultimately to his death for us on the Cross. This connection is depicted in the following painting, which was on our screens and Order of Service covers.

We left our 10 a.m. Services, as those who have been Baptized into the death of Our Lord, and raised in his new Life, to take up his Cross of love and go forth into this broken world he so loves with his light shining through us. At our 10 a.m. Service, we ventured forth with the following videos reminding us of this sacred calling.
