PASSING THE PEACE

HYMN #347Spir­it Song

WRITTEN WORD Matthew 3:13–17

Then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jor­dan to be bap­tized by John. But John tried to deter him, say­ing, “I need to be bap­tized by you, and do you come to me?” Jesus replied, “Let it be so now; it is prop­er for us to do this to ful­fill all right­eous­ness.” Then John con­sent­ed. As soon as Jesus was bap­tized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heav­en was opened, and he saw the Spir­it of God descend­ing like a dove and alight­ing on him. And a voice from heav­en said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.”

   One: The Word of God for the peo­ple of God

   All:    Thanks be to God

QUESTIONS OF FAITH AND LIFE

 • Do you dream heav­en­ly dreams?

 • Does your spir­it move like a dove

 • Do you feel lift­ed know­ing God loves you

MESSAGE Peace and Light           Kay Phillips
