This Sunday: Identity
January 7th, 2015 | John Chandler
This week marks the transition from Christmas to Epiphanytide. The idea of incarnation, that eternal, infinite God would become man, is too big for one day. Epiphany follows the stories of the first encounters with Jesus, as a baby and as a young man.
This Sunday, we’ll return to Mark 1, to the desert and to John the Baptist. Here we’ll watch as Jesus identifies with his people, and as God the Father and God the Holy Spirit identify who Jesus is.
We’ll leave the story knowing a little more about Jesus and about ourselves.
