Sermon on hiking in the dark, following Jesus or twitchy-eyed Steve, the psychotic Ranger into the desert on a life-altering journey. Along the way we prepare to baptize three wonderful children: Amena, Jack, and David. We are called again to commit ourselves to this amazing thing that God is doing here at Grace Church.
Almighty and merciful God, it is only by your gift that your faithful people offer you true and laudable service: Grant that we may run without stumbling to obtain your heavenly promises; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
