The Baptism of Our Lord

January 10, 2016


What does it really mean to belong to and with God? What does the decision to belong say not only about me, but about the One who calls me to belong? What does it say about God’s power, God’s mercy, God’s excess?

It seems so impossible to imagine how you can be loved so completely. . . without lessening the love of anyone else. And yet that is what God says to us – just as God say to Jesus: “You are my beloved, in you I am well pleased.”

And if we can possibly comprehend this. If we can imagine what it is like to balance our lives on such an immense swell of power and life. . . how do we respond?
