A reflection on Baptism and Identity focussing on Jesus’ baptism in Luke 3:21-22 and Rey in Star Wars – The Last Jedi.

What makes you who you are? Is it your parents, your relationships, your family, your work, your personality, your loves, your joys, your fears, your successes, your disappointments, your strengths, your vulnerabilities? Is it your faith?

Warning: contains Star Wars spoilers!
