Suzy Aja Burba preaching
John the Baptist recognized Jesus for who he is upon their first encounter. The dove that descended from heaven upon Jesus helped clue John in to Jesus' identity as God’s chosen one. Given that our encounters with God are of a spiritual nature, and not a physical, tangible one, makes it more difficult for us to recognize God’s presence. Likewise, being attuned to the true, God-given identity of ourselves and others is challenging as we exist in a world where unjustified, negative messages abound. Let’s come together on Sunday to look at scripture passages related to how people recognize God and how we recognize each other.
I look forward to our time together on Sunday.
