Baptism and the Center of the Universe

Passage:Luke 4:1-13

Category: Sacrament

The season of Lent is intended to mirror Jesus' 40 days of fasting and temptation in the wilderness, which is the story of our Gospel lesson today. Jesus fast is inaugurated by his baptism, so on this First Sunday of Lent we take some time to think about our own baptism. Learn a few basics about the Sacrament of Baptism, what it means, why we do it, and how does baptism relate to church membership, confirmation, and other practical questions about life in the church.
