Date: 1/12/14 The Baptism of Jesus
Reading: John 1.1-18 (from The Message)
Title: God Moved into the Neighborhood
Synopsis: This morning we will reflect on Rembrandt’s painting “Holy Family.” It depicts the birth in the 17th century. She seems to be dividing her attention between the Word made flesh and the Word made paper and ink. There is something there that suggests OUR needed to connection to both. The Bible and the Christ need to be central to our experiencing and expressing the love of Christ.
