Pastor Ruth tells a story about how Jesus jumped right in to be baptized and take on the role of redeeming us from our brokenness.
Reading: Mark 1:4-11
In those days Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan. And just as he was coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens torn apart and the Spirit descending like a dove on him. And a voice came from heaven, “You are my Son, the Beloved; with you I am well pleased.”Mark 1:9-11 (NRSV)
