Meeting John

John wore clothing made of camel’s hair, with a leather belt around his waist, and he ate locusts and wild honey. And this was his message: “After me comes the one more powerful than I, the straps of whose sandals I am not worthy to stoop down and untie. I baptize you with water, but he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit."

John 1:6-8

Song Time

Our first song is sung to the tune of "Jesus Loves Me"

Here are the words:

John the Baptist taught of God

everywhere he went and trod.

He taught of Jesus coming soon

and slept outside under the moon

And he ate locus

and he ate honey

and he met Jesus

and baptized him one day.
