A Ramble About Baptism

The following post is one of those posts about my faith I do every once and awhile. I hope you who are not of the same faith persuasion will bear with me for a few moments. Thanks for our universal connections.

episcopal-baptismAt my baptism as an 11 year old Baptist kid I was immersed by the Rev. Monty Jordan. That was an experience I will never forget. For the last sixteen years as a United Methodist and in the last year as an Episcopalian I have seen this sacrament expressed as sprinkling, pouring and immersion. There is one Lord, one Faith, one Baptism from a Christian perspective. As far as I am concerned the amount of water needed isn’t what is important. Once you are baptized its a thing between you and God and it should stick with you and be honored in your faith journey. Something universal, something timeless, something that brings you into communion with Christ. Today I saw a baptism of a little one at church and it reminded me that being cleansed, is a spiritual act that takes you into eternity.
