Imagine that you’re staying at the Marriott for the weekend, and on Sunday morning you decide to head down to the pool. Then imagine that a couple hundred people gather around the pool and 18 of them are baptized in the shallow end. That was the scene Sunday morning as our weekly meeting included a fun time at the pool witnessing so many baptisms. I enjoyed seeing fathers baptize their teenage kids and couldn’t help but think about the day when I hope to do the same.
It was also nice to hear the testimonies of a few of the people participating – there was unfortunately not time to hear all of them. I just read a rather remarkable story that we were not able to hear. It’s worth the read.
