The readings were Leviticus 19:1-2, 17-18; 1 Corinthians 3:16-23; Matthew 5:38-48.
“We don’t join a faction or group when we are baptised; we join Christ! We belong to Christ, and therefore to God, not the other way round. When we forget that, we forget the most important thing – something beyond personal preference or personal ideology. God is at the centre of everything, and everything we are and do serves God.”
