You Can’t Keep It Bottled Up
Baptism is a celebration you can’t keep bottled up. We recently initiated a group of friends into our community through the ancient Christian practice of immersion in water. And that’s something worth celebrating.
Before being baptized, these folks underwent a three-month mentorship program to help them understand how to live as disciples. They each were given a mentor from our community and asked to complete a list of learning activities. These ranged from studying scripture together to serving soup to the poor. The goal was not just to learn about the faith but to live it out together.
You can listen to this sermon if you’d like to hear more about the meaning of baptism and why it calls for some serious celebration.
