The Baptism of Our Lord
Today we celebrate the baptism of our Lord. And as soon as we start celebrating, we start asking questions. Why did Jesus need to be baptized? It's year B, so we are reading from Mark in the Revised Common Lectionary, and Mark doesn't give an answer to this question, leaving us to dig for it ourselves. I turned to Bart Simpson of the Simpsons for an answer after speaking with a bunch of idiots. Come see what I mean with our sermon, "The Baptism of Our Lord", by clicking HERE for audio or HERE for text. Community Presbyterian Church of Bellefonte, Kentucky, was built on the casting floor of a 19th Century iron blast furnace. We use "The Casting Floor" as an image for the power of the Spirit to form us. Visit us at http://communitypresbyterian.org.
