Quote for Reflection (Sunday, February 28, 2021)

“That divine image is restored, renewed, discovered again in baptism. We emerge from the baptismal waters as new creations. Never totally new, of course. No matter how dramatic the change, how deep the repentance, how thorough-going the bath, we will continue to have some more repenting to do, some more letting go and letting God do his work in us”. “Individual and social sin continues to act upon our lives even after baptism. Our sin is so entrenched within us, even the best of us that only a lifetime of change will root it out.”

Remember who you are – Baptism, a model for Christian life
