Hi everyone, and... Baptism
Happy New Year!
This is the time of year when some
people make New Year’s resolutions. This
is when they think about making a fresh
start. Of course we could do that at any
time of the year!
When a person is baptised into the
Christian church, that is also a time
when people want to show they are
making a new beginning as a member of
God’s family. In the videos linked below
you can watch three versions of the
story of when Jesus was baptised by his
cousin John in the River Jordan. He
wanted to show everyone he was making
a special new beginning, before starting
his work to teach people about God’s
love for everyone.
On the video link on the next page, a vicar explains how babies and older
people are welcomed into God’s family with different types of baptism. These
always involve water and are a modern day way of copying what Jesus did.
After Jesus was baptised he heard God say, “This is my Son, with whom I am
very pleased.” We can be very glad that God feels the same way about us!
