For 20 January 2008, 2nd Sunday, based on John 1:29-34
The next day he saw Jesus coming toward him and declared, â€œHere is the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world! This is he of whom I said, â€˜After me comes a man who ranks ahead of me because he was before me.â€™ I myself did not know him; but I came baptizing with water for this reason, that he might be revealed to Israel.â€ And John testified, â€œI saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it remained on him. I myself did not know him, but the one who sent me to baptize with water said to me, â€˜He on whom you see the Spirit descend and remain is the one who baptizes with the Holy Spirit.â€™ And I myself have seen and have testified that this is the Son of God.â€

WOW! Very thought provoking, Thank you. I noticed you submitted this early. May I ask do you read your homilies or do you give them without notes? If you give them without notes what steps do you complete ahead of time, and then how do you go back and finalize your preparation before you preach? Thank you in advance for sharing, Peace, Doug PS: Glad you’re not in Kenya now – how tragic, God help them.
