It is one of my absolute favorite things to do as a pastor, maybe the favorite. Baptizing persons whoh have made professions of faith is a great privilege, and yet today this joy was enhanced because I was able to baptize my daughter.
Lucy is 8 years old, and I am so proud of her courage and childlike faith in Jesus. Lori and I are thankful that she is our daughter and now she has shown that she is our sister in Jesus Christ. I am grateful to have been part of this moment in her life and will do my best to be a good example as she continues to learn more about the One who gave his life so we can experience faith, hope, and love.
I remember being able to baptize Cally and how that felt, and now have had that same kind of happiness with Lucy. Now I will continue to pray for our son Matt and that one day he will come to know Jesus as his personal Savior.
