Epiphany 1

This is the day on the Church's calendar that the Baptism of Our Lord is remembered and honored. We also look at the meaning and function of our own baptisms.

Here's something about this great sacrament of initiation that is very worthy of serious reflection, I think:

Baptism is not a bath, but a funeral bier. If it was a bath, you would need it again and again. But since it is a death and new life, it is a once for all picture of the transformation that has taken place in our lives. Baptism is not about your goodness; it's about God's Grace.

-- Dr. Mickey Anders
