Continuing to celebrate the Easter season, today we also celebrate baptism. Baptism uses the powerful symbol of water: God refreshes us, cleanses us, and empowers us, just as water is refreshing, cleansing and powerful. Our story today, John 21:1-19, reminds us that water also brings surprises. Can we remember our baptisms and open ourselves to the surprises of journeying with Jesus?
