Baptism of Jesus – Christian baptism is about a transformation that God initiates in our life – it is a celebration of belonging to a community of inclusive grace. A question concerning one's baptism ought not to be, "Have I been baptised, and was it done correctly?", but rather, "Am I living as a baptised person, in the knowledge of God's embrace?" Baptism does not use magic water to turn you into the person you want to be; but rather, it is a recognition that you are part of a community of flawed and failing people, blessed by God, looking after each other, and seeking to walk the pilgrim way.
Mark 1: 4-11
