All They Could Do
Rev. Chandler Stokes
The lectionary (the traditional set of readings for Sunday mornings) dedicates two Sundays to John the Baptist. Next to Jesus, Paul, and Peter, John the Baptist is mentioned more frequently than any other figure in the New Testament. His message maintained its importance, even after the “One Greater” came after him. His message stayed critical, because it is one for us to uphold: to prepare the Way of the Lord.
