What a glorious day two Sunday’s ago was for Karla and me. On Sunday July 11, 2010 I had the distinct privilege of baptizing 3 teenagers during the morning service. Three people who put their stake in the ground, as it were, to publicly declare their desire to identify themselves with Jesus Christ in His life, death and Resurrection. Two of these teens happened to be our two oldest sons! I didn’t ask Benj and Luke if it was ok to publish these pics for the whole world to see…but I don’t think they even check out my blog.
Plus, we talked to them about how important it was for baptisms to be public…for the whole world to sit up and take notice and perhaps even to hold them accountable for the step that they took! Not that Benj is afraid to be noticed.
As we send Luke off to the University of Minnesota next month..to major in chemical engineering, it makes our hearts glad to see that he is taking this important step of obedience in following the Lord Jesus Christ in baptism…especially in the field of engineering.
After the morning service we enjoyed a potluck meal together with the special kinds of foods that are unique to rural areas like Earlham! (Just in case you were wondering where the title of this post came from)
Thanks to a couple of friends from church we have these pictures to show all of you.
