January 20th: The Beloved Son

Do you remember your baptism?

In the first Pastor’s class I taught, there were 6 4th graders.  We studied for 6 weeks preparing for the young people to make a confession of faith and be baptized.  One of the girls had already been baptized as a baby in another tradition.  She asked if she could be baptized with her friends.  I told her that she had already been baptized and didn’t need to be re-baptized.  She said that she knew she had already been baptized and that God accepted that baptism even though her friends were being baptized by immersion.  She said, “I know I’ve been baptized, but I don’t remember that.  I want a baptism that I’ll remember.”

See y’all Sunday!
