Epiphany - "Baptism of Jesus" |
Luke tells us that following his baptism by John in the Jordan River, while he is praying, Jesus hears a voice addressing him - a voice 'which came from heaven' - a divine voice - 'You are my Son, the Beloved; with you I am well pleased.'. . .
And if we can, if we can, are we then able to begin to acknowledge that this 'belovedness' is a gift to all of God's children, not just to us, not just to those we love and can 'accept' into the circle of God's grace, not just to people who are like us - but to all people. This is the promise, and the invitation of Epiphany.
Isaiah 43: 1-7; Luke 3: 15-17, 21-22
