Into the Flowing River – v2

Into the community of believers
joining the long tradition
begun with Jesus in the Jordan
falling into the flowing river
to be washed of their sin
the fabric of the church
the love of God drenching us
feeding us for his work

Joining all believers
falling into that water
beginning with the Christ
all of us together
swimming in the living waters
joining others in service
surrounded by God’s endless love.
