Winter Retreat, Week 2

Divine Adoption

“Almighty ever-living God, who, when Christ had been baptized in the River Jordan and as the Holy Spirit descended upon him, solemnly declared him your beloved Son, grant that your children by adoption, reborn of water and the Holy Spirit, may always be well pleasing to you.”

– Collect prayer for the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord

College football championship – feels like we’re part of the team?  Maybe.  More importantly, we really truly share in Christ’s divine sonship.
