Mark 1:4-11

2018-01-02 — We’re big in New Zealand

BIBLE PASSAGE — John the baptizer appeared in the wilderness, proclaiming a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins. And people from the whole Judean countryside and all the people of Jerusalem were going out to him, and were baptized by him in the river Jordan, confessing their sins. Now John was clothed with camel’s hair, with a leather belt around his waist, and he ate locusts and wild honey. He proclaimed, “The one who is more powerful than I is coming after me; I am not worthy to stoop down and untie the thong of his sandals. I have baptized you with water; but he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit.” In those days Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan. And just as he was coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens torn apart and the Spirit descending like a dove on him. And a voice came from heaven, “You are my Son, the Beloved; with you I am well pleased.” — The Baptism of Our Lord, Series B

    I like your cartoons too. It is amazing that a Missouri Synod produced a man of wit and good humor. ;D

    Big in New Zealand? Is that like “big in Japan,” but with Hobbits?

    We’re big with Hobbits, also shepherds.

    Rev. Susan,
    Perhaps you don’t know the Mo. Synod clergy I do. We’re a LAUGH RIOT!
