His father asked him three times what was wrong. Finally, the boy replied, "hat priest said he wanted us brought up in a Christian home, but I want to stay with you guys." We acknowledge first that Baptism is God s act, God s initiative and God s gift. It connects us to Jesus, the Church and eternal life. Baptism is the foundational event that brings us into the community of faith and gives us our identity as God s people. Martin Luther regularly reminded people that baptism was the beginning of something that takes a lifetime to complete. emembering our baptism can be an important source of comfort and strength as we struggle with societal values that are opposed to life in Christ. Because we are baptized we are "in, not of" this world and our primary citizenship is in the kingdom of God. When we are baptized we do not become solitary Christians, but we are baptized into a community of faith that is part of a communion of saints that spans space and time. s part of our Lenten discipline this year we will be recalling and remembering our baptism with the prayer that what God began with us he will accomplish.
