Into the Water
Not too long ago we joyfully celebrated Sienna's baptism. Isaiah cheered her on enviously, wishing he could tell everyone that he loves Jesus and wants to follow Him for the rest of his life. I remember him tugging at my skirt while I talked to Sienna about baptism and its meaning. "I'm ready mom. I'm not afraid. I know what it means," he whispered. I knew he was ready then and I know he is ready now to express his love for God through participation in the sacrament of baptism. We invite you to pray for him this week as we help him prepare for this sacred day in his life.
The baptism will be Sunday, June 8 at the American River Confluence, 1:00pm. If you live locally please feel welcome to come out and share in this part of his life. Check out www.emmauslife.org for a map or updates on the baptism.
