Belonging

Come & See

Christians believe that everyone is invited to share in the life and work of God through Baptism. The Bible recounts God’s invitations to people to share in his life and work: among them Moses, Samuel, the prophets, Mary and the apostles.

Word of God:

“The next day, John again was standing with two of his disciples, and as he watched Jesus walk by, he exclaimed, ‘Look, here is the Lamb of God!’ The two disciples heard him say this, and they followed Jesus. When Jesus turned and saw them following, he said to them, ‘What are you looking for?’ They said to him, ‘Rabbi (which translated means ‘Teacher’), where are you staying?’ He said to them, ‘Come and see.’ They came and saw where he was staying, and they remained with him that day.” (John 1:35-39)

 

Almighty and eternal God,

you keep together those you have united. Look kindly on all who follow Jesus your Son.

We are all consecrated to you by our common baptism;

make us one in the fullness of faith

and keep us one in the fellowship of love. Amen.
