B10’s Baptism

B10 made his public profession of faith over 2 years ago, but our search for a permanent church home meant that he had to wait to be baptized.

I am so pleased that he did, because it was a very meaningful ceremony today.  Our church believes that to make a public profession inside a church building, with only church people around, isn’t very public.  So they hold baptisms outside, on the front lawn.

I was asked to affirm B10 and his decision, in front of everyone.  Then he was baptized by the Middle School minister, who made quite a few jokes about how cold B10 was (he was shivering).

The bible verse I read for B10 was Genesis 1:24-26, when God made the “small crawling animals”.  Then I spoke of how God made more creepy crawly insects than any other type of animal, so He must really like them.  I told everyone how incredible I thought it was that B10 manifested that very special part of God in himself, and how excited I was to know that B10 was moving forward on the path God had laid out for him.  Most importantly – that B10 knew in his heart that he wanted to be a scientist and that God was going to use him as a smart, Christian scientist.

GO was very concerned when B10 went underwater, and attached herself to him after he was dried off and changed clothes.

Special “thank you” to Cookie and Doc who came after their church service to see B10 and to Aunt K, who not only came, but graciously took pictures.
