Genesis 1:1-5 (Psalm 29); Acts 19:1-7; Mark 1:4-11
Will the water bring death or life?
From the first instant of creation, water has played midwife to God’s creation story. After the flood, God set a rainbow in the clouds. God saw your people as slaves in Egypt, and led them to freedom through the sea. God brought their children through the Jordan to a promised land. And in the fullness of time, God sent Jesus, nurtured in the water of a womb.
