This Sunday is The Baptism of our Lord, and an opportunity to reflect on the central meaning of our Baptism – the full measure of being unconditionally welcomed and loved by God. As Children of God we are commissioned to live into and through the promises that were made and the salvation received at the moment of our Baptism. If we can see one another as deserving of love, deserving of security, deserving of respect and deserving of justice then we will never be constrained to to meet these needs in others.
