“Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off—for all whom the Lord our God will call.” With many other words he warned them; and he pleaded with them, “Save yourselves from this corrupt generation.” Those who accepted his message were baptized, and about three thousand were added to their number that day.” Acts 2:38-41 NIV

There is good news! We just celebrated Jesus’ birth, and in our lectionary, Jesus’ baptism was just celebrated as he readies himself for his ministry. It’s going to be an exciting three years for Jesus and his disciples, and an exciting few months as we ready ourselves for Lent and to celebrate Easter!
Just the other day, I was reading a few lines from an article online that had a title of “good news.” I talked to Steve about it, he talked to me about the article about happy times. I looked at him questioningly for a few moments before I figured out that the article’s “good news” had become “happy times.”
