A Good Day for Baptisms

Holy Baptism is full initiation by water and the Holy Spirit into Christ's Body the Church. The bond which God establishes in Baptism is indissoluble.

Holy Baptism is appropriately administered within the Eucharist as the chief service on a Sunday or other feast. -- The Book of Common Prayer, 298

On this Easter Day, Churches around the world are baptizing new disciples of Jesus Christ as we continue to proclaim that Christ is risen from the dead. Here are four people I baptized at St. Mark's in Woodbine, GA today, along with the mother of two of them.

Jacob and his brother Zachary enjoyed their baptisms. Little Henry seemed to have no opinion either way, but his sister Amelia was not amused. That's OK. Some day she will thank her parents for bringing her to the font.
