Christian's Baptism


May 25, 2013, we baptized Christian as a child of the covenant at Covenant Presbyterian Church. We do not take photos during the worship service itself, but we took the opportunity, with much of the family gathered, to get some nice photos.

The baptism itself was . . . interesting. As soon as I stepped up to the front, I felt Christian going poo in his diaper. Sure enough, he began wailing almost immediately and would not be consoled. He is normally such a well-behaved child that we hoped for better, but it comes with the territory.

Several people have asked why we believe in infant baptism. For those interested, I wrote a short essay as an introduction to the theology behind it. You can find it at
