Water Washed, Spirit Born

Falling Water, Running Love
This holy moment happened because  God promised it would. Water washed and spirit born we are received into the mystery of God's presence, in, with, and under all things.

That sounds all churchy and foreign.
But when you are there . . .
   holding the baby,
   splashing the water,
   saying the words,
   connecting  lives and love . . .
It is real in a rare and beautiful way.

We are baptized.
We are loved.
We are children of God.
   and it is not our doing
   but God's power that does this.
Thanks Be To God.

Welcome Henry,
   to the fellowship of the holy.

Peace,
Pastor Mark
