The Christian church calendar moves pretty quickly from Jesus’ birth to his baptism. The gospel of Mark starts with John the Baptist and from there introduces us to Jesus.
This Sunday, we are asked to remember our baptism. I am reading a book which posits that we all need to spend time looking inward to see what causes different emotions in us, to recognize what gives us energy and what zaps it, to know ourselves as a crucial part of our spiritual growth.
Remembering our baptism is a good time to do that inward discovering.
