Sermon – Sunday, Jan. 12, 2014 – Created To Connect

audio-ministryUnderneath our sinful tendency toward division, there is within all of us a constant drive for connection; one that’s so easily overwhelmed by our fear of imperfection. Into that world of division and isolation, the Son of God wades into the waters of the Jordan River, submitting in an act of astounding mercy to the baptism of sinners. Today, we confront our fear of imperfection and learn what it means to thrive in the Community of the Also-Baptized. (1 Kings 12:1-12; Matthew 3:13-17)
