The sacrament of baptism

#411 #day23 saw me back on placement with three services, one of which was a #baptism. #water, as something that #cleanses, is key here and I was struck by its symbolism. Ten years ago, on interview for #teachertraining I had used water as an artefact for a lesson demonstration. It is something that each major faith uses in worship or ritual in some way. Water is #vital to us. To be baptised with something this #essential to life in the name of the #creatorredeemerandsustainer shows how important we are to God – #amazingsacrament. God creates us to be in relationship with our Creator; God draws us close to establish that relationship through baptism.
