Matthew 3:13 Then Jesus came from Galilee to John at the Jordan, to be baptized by him. * * * * * * * * * * I know the date of my baptism. I know the name of the city, the church and the pastor. I know where my baptismal certificate is located because I see it every day near my college degrees and my ordination certification. Clustered on the wall shelves around those papers are the pictures of beloved one and mementos of experiences that came as a direct result of swimming through baptismal waters. We can tread in our baptismal waters but why not swim? * * * * * * * * * * Stroke, breath, kick. I am on the way through another day. Amen.
