This week, our readings center on baptism: on being born again by water and spirit; on new hearts and new spirit; on new creations and new ministries; on new access to the presence and peace of God. In baptism we share in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. We repent of our sins and leave behind the false idols and identities we have collected, and receive instead our new identity as member of Christ, beloved of God and redeemed. Each week we proclaim the creed to refresh our memory of who we are, by proclaiming the God who defines our new identity.
