This may have been the most special Confirmation Class I have ever been a part of teaching. One youth member of our class had never been baptized. So while we have been learning about the sacraments of baptism and Holy Communion, it seemed appropriate to make the invitation to baptize him during class. So that is what we did.
His family came, his classmates surrounded him, and we celebrated the beautiful service of baptism. And we rejoiced in welcoming a new member to God's family. Then together we all celebrated Holy Communion.
What a wonderful celebration of community, of welcome, of God’s love and acceptance, and of God’s grace - truly an intersection of God’s blessing of faith and life. My heart is surely full!
