by Joshua Bode
who through the baptism of your Son’s body in the waters of the Jordan
made known your blessing upon the elements of creation:
Grant that today through the body of Christ all creation may witness its destiny,
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God now and forever.
Josh Bode is the pastor of the Woodstock Reformed Church, Woodstock, New York.
