It was truly a blessing to be a part of my church’s Praise in the Park and Water Baptism Service.
Seeing the sea of diversity of those making public declarations for Jesus, not only warmed my heart, but it encouraged me regarding the current state of the church. It’s no secret that the church at large has gotten a great deal of flack for a bunch of different reasons that I don’t think I need to outline.
One thing that’s for sure, however, as I had the privilege of helping to baptize folks, is that people are still interested in Jesus. People still desire to discover who He is and who He longs for us to be. It’s evident that, although folks might cower away at standing up for their “church”, people aren’t hesitant to publicly declare their allegiance to Jesus.
And, at the end of the day, that’s what it’s all about.
Needless to say, I am proud to be part of this community and I am proud to be called shepherd by my Branch family.
Great job guys!!!
Y’all are awesome!
