Reflection: The Rev. Valerie Balling Rector, St. Barnabas Episcopal Church, Monmouth Junction, NJ These few verses are the essense of the Baptismal Covenant, the blue-print of how to live as a Christian. Imagine what the world, or even our churches, would be like if we actually followed these tenets. Let's accept the challenge and practice thems each day, making them our holy habits.
Reflection: The Rev. Ollie Rencher Rector, Grace-St. Luke's Episcopal Church, Memphis, TN Board of Directors, The Gathering of Leaders The baptismal call to navigate this world and other human beings, our companion images of God, in the love, light, and hope of Jesus is no small charge. This daily invitation presents countless opportunities and lifechanging choices to move deeper into the way of Jesus and to make him known. Whenever we bless, rejoice, weep, serve, and seek both equity and peace with another, we faithfully are practicing Christian goodness. In all things and with God’s help, let us choose goodness in the name of Jesus.
