In November last year, Talitha, my oldest daughter asked me if she could get baptised. I suppose I shouldn’t have been surprised - she’d been showing an interest in following Jesus for some time. She attends a weekly gathering where a small group of us are exploring what it means to follow of Jesus, and she’s seen some of the group get baptised in response - so I guess it was only natural for her to want to do the same.
Anyway, we finally arranged to use a baptistry pool at a local church on March 6th 2010. Back in Summer, 2009, a worship time we attended at Greenbelt, led by Agents of Future, seemed to ignite a spark in Talitha, and aspects of the evening were inspired by that worship experience. Our thanks go out to Agents of Future - they really encouraged Talitha.
The evening was relaxed and informal, and it was a real privilege for me to baptise my own daughter in a loving and supportive atmosphere, among friends and family.
