09 January 2022 – Baptism of Jesus (09C)

(Luke 3:15-22)
After all the crowd
Jesus was also baptised,
then claimed, blessed by God.

In part John was wrong:
no clearing the threshing floor,
no winnowing fork.

John dared preach good news:
Jesus, filled with the Spirit,
the nearness of God.

We dare preach good news:
simply in living daily
the way of Jesus.
