Baptism of the Lord


                                           Sunday, January 10, 2021 - The Baptism of the Lord

Our reading are:  Isiah 55:1-11; Psalm from Isaiah 12: "You will draw water joyfully from the springs of savation"; John 5:1-9; Mark 1:7-11.   A copy of the readings can be downloaded below.

This is what John the Baptist proclaimed: "One mighter that I is coming after me.  I am not worthy to stoop and loosen the thongs of his sandals.  I have baptisted you with water; he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit."  It happened in those days that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee and was baptized in the Jordan by John.  On coming up out of the the water he saw the heavens being torn open and the Spirit, like a dove, decending upon him.  And a voice came from the heavens, "You are my beloved Son; with you I am well pleased."  (Mark 1:7-11)
