This is the Confirmation service in a 2 CD set. (Same sermon attached as the earlier service for today.) Eleven of our young people confirm the faith into which they were baptised as children.

The Baptism of Jesus Begins Our Adoption

Originally, baptism was a washing for repentant sinners. That's why John was surprised when Jesus, the sinless one, stepped forward for baptism in the Jordan. But the process of Jesus taking on our sins begins here. And this also changed baptism itself, from a simple washing to a means of the Holy Spirit for the forgiveness of sins. [Organ - Epiphany 1]
