Run Time: 10:48. Gospel: Lk 3:15-16, 21-22.

You see Jesus came not just to teach us all to behave well – hopefully we do learn that. Not just to make us nice to one another, but to make us a new creation. That the very life of God should dwell in you and me and we should show it. So, yes, there is a way to live carrying this gift of God, this gift of Divine Life within us, but it begins with the gift. It begins in baptism.

Gospel: Lk 3:10-18.
