Jordan Baptism

Every pastor loves being able to officiate at a baptism. This sacrament of celebration, whether of and infant or adult believer is stunning because it touches eternity and connects into the history of the faith. Never is that truer than at the origin or Christian baptism: the River Jordan.
On of MCC's confirmands, Karl Fredrickson, chose to accompany his mom on this trip to Israel and requested baptism. Karl is a quiet and deep young man who wants to follow Jesus. He's the kind of guy with few words but with big heart. So when he and I entered the waters this afternoon, it was altogether a normal baptism and a baptism I will never forget.
What a privilege it is to be a pastor!!
