January 25: Reflection on Rebirth through Baptism

            We recognize baptism as a rebirth into a community of God. Let us not use this community as a means of exclusion. Peter described baptism as “not the removal of dirt from the body” so we must not see those who are not baptized as unclean. Instead, may we view baptism as a communion between us, Jesus, and all of God’s people. When we reflect, we discover that baptism was not a one-time event but a constant promise of unity and care in Jesus’ name.
