Our readings this week focus our attention on the great gift that God has given to us -- Baptism. The Old Testament reading describes God's servant people Israel who fail and are replaced by God's perfect servant -- his son Jesus. Our Epistle Reading tells us how we are connected to Jesus' death and resurrection through our Baptism and our Gospel reading tells us of Jesus' own Baptism and gives us a picture of the Trinity.
My name is Tom. I'm fascinated by the ways that people, ideas, current events and theology interact with each other.
