Brother Achilles always blamed his spiritual weaknesses on the fact that he was never fully immersed during his baptism.
Baptism at the First Baptist Church of Salem Massachusetts!
Shelton, I was thinking the same thing but I couldn't square how they would have gotten out that deep without getting their feet wet. ;-)
The danger of baptizing people with big heads.
"Let's give him another minute. He is a former Presbyterian."
"I guess it just wasn't meant to be. Oh well, at least one of his so(u)ls is saved!"
stranger.strange.land:lol, that was very funny.
Pastors Eddings and Shelton IV baptizing their first Olympic athlete - a solo synchonized swimmer.
oldbutweary, as punishment for that joke I have listed your blog "The Lighthearted Calvinist" on my blog list.
Whew.When I saw you were dishing out punishment, I thought you were going to make me read "The Purpose Driven Life" over and over while watching all the NOOMA videos on an endless loop. That, my friend, would redefine "hard time."Being sentenced to your blog list ain't nothin' in comparison, my brother. Bring it on!!!!
Angus...I have to say "LOL"...well, I don't have to say LOL it's just an indication that I may have laughed out loud. It's a lot easier than typing out "hahahahahahahahaha" every time or posting a wav file with actual laughter.
Hahaha! That's what I call a baptism!
Jonah! We know you love water, but this is ridiculous!
Pastor Jay is seen here with Deacon Ray baptizing the pastor's youngest son Brandon. Brandon, upon seeing his friend Charlie cannon ball into the baptistry, insisted on entering the water in a perfect swan dive. (nearly a true story, I did not have help baptizing my boy...and he can't swan dive)
OK, lets try this again and see if we cant get all of him immersed for at least a fraction of a second...hey anybody filming this?
