In the story of Jesus' baptism, we are reminded of our own baptisms and the connection baptism gives us to people across place and time and to the incarnation of God in Jesus Christ. The words of the prophet Isaiah, echoing in the words spoken by God at Jesus' baptism, remind us of what that call to baptismal ministry means as we go together to the font to renew our baptismal covenant and splash around in the living waters of baptism.
