Call To Worship
One: In the very beginning, God separated the darkness and the light. God called the Light "Day" and the Darkness, God called "Night".
All: We were once people who dwelled in darkness, but God has given us the true Light, Jesus Christ.
One: God has blessed us and adopted us as God’s own beloved children, through the sacrament of Baptism.
All: The water of baptism brings to us healing and reconciliation; it is a symbol of nourishment and cleansing.
One: This day is the day of the remembrance of Jesus’ Baptism.
All: As we hear the words of his baptism, let us be reminded of our own adoption by God and celebrate the joyous connection to the Almighty God.
All: Lord, thank You for the people You have divinely placed in my life who speak holy truth, love and words of wisdom. Give me a heart of discernment to know when You are using someone to speak instruction into my heart and my circumstances, and give me the strength and courage to follow through with that advice, even when it’s hard. Fill me with peace in the new year ahead. And all God’s children say, “Amen!”
