Something to ponder.... When we celebrate Jesus’ baptism, we celebrate an act of giving, of submission, but also of vision. Jesus went under the water at the hands of cousin John as a sign of being human, as a sign of submitting himself to the dream of Judaism, which was a vision of a whole community. We give of ourselves because we know walking alone is empty, but sharing with community and humanity is full. We give to that dream.
