Sharing the Good News

In baptism, physically, meaningfully
sharing the good news,
the gospel of the Christ
in our actions, our submission
falling into the waters
dying to that which we were
like Christ being a sacrifice
choosing to join with him
into the waters, the depths
Rising with him, into the light
new creations, touched by the Spirit
made children of God, beloved
blessed with life anew
sharing the good news
the redeeming love of God
joining our lives with our brother
our savior, our King
