It took a year to read the Bible, then almost 9 months to read the Apocrypha. Now, I'm going to try to offer reflections on the Narrative Lectionary. But, I won't be posting daily--at least, for a while.

Baptism rules, a reflection on Luke 3:7-14

John describes what is expected of the baptized:
    Share with those who have less than you do.
    Don't use the authority you have to hurt those who are weaker than you.
    Don't cheat.
    Don't harass.

Is this the message we offer to the newly baptized? Is this the way we oldly baptized behave?
