Sermon

Young Adult Minister Kit Novotny notes that as human beings we can take for granted that we will, on a regular basis, fall short of the glory of God. Like other sensitive bodies, John the Baptist. can see this reality and calls his people to a new thing, immersing them in the water of the Jordan River. He was an ascetic, but he also led people to God through this surprisingly physical and intimate act, inviting us to reverence and compassion for the body. For us to honor our own bodies also calls us to honor all bodies.
