The lines have fallen to me in pleasant places; Indeed, my heritage is beautiful to me. ~ Psalm 16:6 nasb

Baptized


Our family happily drove downtown Chicago on Sunday, to not only witness Elliot's baptism, but to support his decision and to be an encouragement to him and his family.


Elliot and his family attend our church, and we humbly count them as friends.  This young man comes from an incredible heritage of Christian faithfulness, and it was an honor to witness the next generation's public declaration of faith in Christ.


This was the first multi-generational baptism ceremony we had witnessed.  Elliot's dad baptized him, and his grandfather spoke encouragement and blessing afterward.


Or do you not know that all of us
who have been baptized into Christ Jesus
have been baptized into His death?
Therefore we have been buried with Him
through baptism into death,
so that as Christ was raised from the dead
through the glory of the Father,
so we too might walk in newness of life.
Romans 6:3-4 nasb


Back to life,
