Reflections on a Beautiful Weekend
Saturday morning dawned hopeful and bright and we spent the morning getting ready for a baptism at Vintage on Sunday. Being from the tradition of fully dunking medium to full grown adults means finding something big enough to dunk them in. While a hot tub in somebody's front yard for 75 bucks was an interesting thought, we had decided to borrow the tank used at the local prison. Yup. You read that right.
Truly, of all the things we do as a church, baptisms are my favorite. I loved watching baptisms as a kid and I still love them. I think it's because I figure, if somebody is willing to voluntarily get dunked in a horse trough in front of their family and friends, they must be pretty serious about following Jesus and that's pretty great.
It's hard to come back to Monday after a weekend like that.
