So last night was baptism in our church. It was so great!! I love baptisms. I think one of the things I love most about them is the God-stories. I think it makes the Christian faith more real, when we can hear about people who have been rescued from pride, anger, lust, drunkenness, loneliness, etc. There is something powerful in hearing about how God is moving and changing lives. That is one of my favorite things about church. It is made up of real people who are being changed into the likeness of Christ, they are not the same people they were before. So yeah, I love baptisms!!
Interestingly enough Colossians talks LOTS about baptism, and becoming a member of the family of God. After checking into it a bit, I think I see a whole new reason for why baptism and membership should go together. Anyway I'm not really interested in getting into that here, but if you have questions or disagree maybe we can talk about that some other time. For today, let's just say that having taught the class on Colossians I now have an even greater appreciation for baptism and what it means.

Anyway, here is my favorite clip from Nacho Libre, which happens to fit really well with the whole baptism theme.
