The Feast of the Baptism of Jesus

January 9 – The Feast of the Baptism of Our Lord
Over the last few years I have used the custom of inviting everyone to symbolically renew their baptism. I have found a couple of litanies that seem to work and with the invitation to come forward nearly everyone responds. This Sunday was no different and the sermon was created with such a response in mind.
Rite and ritual is downplayed in much of Kiwi culture and the chance to do something symbolically for oneself as part of a communal act is not always available.
