This afternoon, Bookworm and I attended the baptism of a friend. These occasions always make me appreciate the church of my faith. The beauty of the words, the promises... the giving of the child to a life filled with God's presence.... The ritual of anointing, then flowing water, aromatic chrism.... A new life in Christ.
Thank you, friends, for inviting us to share in your joy today. And welcome, Charlie! May your life be blessed with rich faith and abundant love.
