We really hope that you have had a blessed Christmas; blessed with family and friends, blessed with space and time and rest and blessed with renewed faith, hope and peace for this old world of ours. On Sunday we start back with a bang…. or in fact, a splash! As part of our service this morning we will see a baptism. As a disciple of Jesus Christ this baptism is costly! It will cost him in his choices, in comforts and in self-interest, yet it will aﬀord him a true perspective, a hope and the very presence of a loving God throughout the rest of his life. And as he makes this commitment we will all be invited to make a commitment to Christ for the coming year as we listen to God’s word to us, through Joshua 3.
