baptism & communion

hello there .. i'm still alive and well. and busy! but here's a short story..

this past sunday we had three baptisms at church. it was very enjoyable. each of them told part of their story and who God has shown Himself to be for them. and we sang some good songs, and prayed for them, and watched them get baptized. good times. and after that we had communion together -- their first communion and a time to be the Body of Christ together. when i was in college, i got to attend an anglican church for two years and we had communion together every sunday. which got me a bit spoiled, i suppose. but i miss the tangible reminder of who God is and who we are in Him. so it was good to have that this past sunday.

and what a good reminder that all over the world and throughout history there are innumerable Children of God who are part of Christ's Body. bigger than i can understand or grasp. and i'm glad that He can use symbols from 'daily life' to help us recall what He did, who He is, and who we are.
