Day 13: Wednesday: Baptism

A stoic Yankee
A Baptist bowl
and a lot of water
met for a moment
one November day
Some fifteen years gone by

Back erect
Arms folded across your chest
You fell back into loving arms
joining a fellowship, a community
a new walk, a reconnection
a new life up from the waters of life

When you were baptised, were you explicitly connected into a community? Informally connected? Give thanks for the people who travelled with you to baptism, and for those who journey with you now.

Poem by Raymond A. Foss
