Today we visited the place where Jesus was baptised at Bethany beyond the Jordan. We renewed our baptism vows in the blistering heat at this, the lowest place on the earth’s surface. How appropriate that Jesus should stoop literally to the lowest place on earth that he might raise us to the heights of heaven. At our Eucharist the Revd Gabby Llewelyn gave this moving address.

Baptism – to be dipped into – to be dunked into God – to be immersed into God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit is a joy to the soul and the mending of broken hearts and lives. I was there at the Jordan in 1977. I feel the need to return.
