Remembering Baptism — in the Jordan River

Posted to our blogs on 6.29… from Israel

Friends,

Greetings from Tiberias, Israel. We began today at the Jordan River with a service of Remembrance of Baptism. We read together the account of Jesus’ baptism by John in the Jordan at the beginning of his public ministry:

The beginning of the good news about Jesus Christ, God’s Son, happened just as it was written about in the prophecy of Isaiah:

Look, I am sending my messenger before you. He will prepare your way, a voice shouting in the wilderness: “Prepare the way for The Lord; make his paths straight.”

welcome box_webWELCOME BOXES NEEDED

On Sunday, we lifted up the children fleeing poverty and violence in Central America. At any given time 15 to 30 of these children are being temporarily sheltered at the Catholic Charities facility here in Fort Worth. To help these children we will be collecting COMPLETE Welcome Boxes at the First Street Methodist Mission and delivering them to Catholic Charities. Please assemble and clearly mark your Welcome Box so we can make sure it gets to the right place.

Please fill a plastic shoebox-sized container with:

Shampoo

Conditioner

Body Wash/Bar Soap

Toothpaste

Toothbrush

Brush/Comb

Pack of Hair Ties

Deodorant and Small Toy

Another way to help is to identify people who might be interested in becoming a foster family for some of these children.

To learn more, Rev. Page Hines (phines@firststreetmission.org) at 817/339-8881.
