I am very grateful to Gaby Malcolm for this fantastic piece of art which she so kindly gave to me as an ordination present. It is currently exhibited in my office on top of the filing cabinet.

Lillie’s baptism

with one comment

Lillie (my step-granddaughter) was baptized today…and I baptized her! What an amazing privilege. I had been looking forward to baptizing someone ever since we sat up in James Steven’s office at Trinity college and had a hearty conversation about the pros and cons of infant baptism (obviously my baptist brothers and sisters have a different perspective on the practice and the theological college seminar debate was ‘full and hearty’ as a result!). At that point I had no idea my first baptism would be of a member of my family. So, there you go…

So, we have been feeding hoards of people since mid-day and now they are moving on to more food and the wine has come out…I have 2 more services to take so I am sitting in my office. As my office is the quietest place in the house Lillie is in here with me asleep in her pram – so the new Christian and I are spending some down time chilling in the curate’s office.

Anyway, I have 2 services to put the finishing touches to so I’d best get off…
