Last Sunday we celebrated my daughter Alexis’ baptism at the pool of some local friends. The event was sponsored by the Ephrata Foursquare Church, one of the two churches we attend, Menno Mennonite Church being the other.
It was a special time for all of us as we shared in Alexis’ celebration and public proclamation of her faith in Jesus. And it was particularly special for me to share in the experience by praying over her and baptizing her myself.
Children are such a remarkable gift from God. And Alexis is no exception. What a joy it is to see her grow in her faith, standing on the foundation laid by Jesus, in the home that Deana and I have provided her, so that she may grow beyond what we could attain, passing her faith onto her own children someday. This is our hope, that Alexis baptism was not only a proclamation of her faith, but that the Kingdom of God grows through families. May God Bless you Alexis.Leave a Comment
