Holy Collision!

Lectionary Reflection for the Baptism of our Lord
January 8, 2012
Mark’s gospel propels us like carnival bumper cars into a holy collision of water, Word, and Spirit. Are you ready? This is no Sunday for “nicey-nice” tame imagery in the presence of the Creator who brought life from chaos and salvation from sin. (Photo by Paul Holloway used under Creative Commons License.

The Gift of Water (Living and Otherwise)

Seventh Sunday of Easter, Year C

This week’s texts speak of unity in Christ and living water freely given to all who are thirsty. Christians today have the opportunity both to point to the Living Water and to see that all of God’s children have access to clean water. Share the good news, and give so that others may live.
