On Sunday, January 9, we celebrate the Baptism of the Lord. We remember that, through Jesus, we join in the baptismal covenant too. On this Sunday. we renew the baptismal vows made by our parents and the ones we have made ourselves. This is a treasured service in the church where we come forward, are blessed by the pastors, and just as the waters of baptism are a visual sign of the covenant, we receive a glass bead which represents those waters.
