Rev Sandy Boyce – Length 18:01

Baptism of Jesus – The Hebrew scriptures assure us that in the beginning God declared the whole of his creation to be good – and that includes mankind. We have been blessed with original goodness, not cursed with original sin. Evil and sin are a rejection by us of the original mission that God had for his creation; and God longs for us to repent, to rethink and question the way we've been going. Christian baptism should not be seen as a way of escapng condemnation, but as an invitation into God's community, to be blessed by God so we can be a blessing to others. How do you live out your baptism as a follower of Jesus?
Mark 1: 4-11
