John, baptizer, mystic,
 purified by the Word,
 baptized with water
 the cleansing spirit of God.
 A humble man,
 predicted the coming
 of a man who baptizes
 with the Holy Spirit.
 Like John, we now live in a wilderness,
 seemingly lost to all reason;
 John reminds us to trust,
 to turn back to the Source,
 turn back to God,
 the Great Forgiver;
 renew our commitment
 to justice and peace.
 As we journey from the wilderness,
 we receive Christ’s Love and Grace;
 we strengthen our bonds
 through our holy baptism.
