Baptism April 12

"In spite of divisions among Christians,
all those justified by faith
through baptism
are incorporated into Christ...
brothers and sisters in the Lord."

Pope John Paul II

The German words are the "form" of Baptism:
"I baptize you in the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit."

Thank you, John.

Micki, I was posting something here last Saturday morning, but I couldn't finish my sentences because we had to run for one of my children's sports.

Anyway, I was sharing that I was recently meditating on these very words you posted because of a recent incident in my church. My ponderings? Discord in church happens because of our differences, and because we are a conglomeration of God's children with all types of brokenness, chances are, what we say or do might offend someone. Praise God our church preaches love and forgiveness! And that sure is a good combination!

Thanks so very much, Micki!
