In this episode, we consider the readings for the first Sunday after the Epiphany: The Baptism of Our Lord, Year B:
Genesis 1:1-5; Psalm 29; Acts 19:1-7 & Mark 1:4-11.
We discuss the imagery of light and darkness, water and dove, as well as the descriptions of God's voice as we consider the baptism of Jesus.

Our outro music is an original song by our friend Dcn. Jeremiah Webster, a poet and professor whose giftedness is rivaled by his humbleness. You can find his published works, including After So Many Fires, with a quick Google.
