We really made sure we celebrated through the holidays. Two days were to celebrate Papa’s 60th birthday and the rest were spent with our families: our own and church family.
some random photos from our simple family get together as we celebrated with papa as he turned 60.
The little guy had his hair trimmed again. It’s his third time with the barber’s and it looks like he’s really used to it already. Except for the time that he kept on playing with the trimmed hairs that fall on the trimming cape and the hairs went flying to his eyes. He stopped right then when he felt the sting. Â He has really warmed up to the barber’s procedure from the shaving to the trimming and the vacuuming.
random photos from yesterday’s youth and baptism services (I forgot to take pictures of the communion and the morning services)
And what could be more appropriate but top the celebration with the communion and baptism service. Both of which symbolize the very essence of the season. Baptism and the Lord’s supper reminds us about the Savior’s death, burial and resurrection. The elements used during Communion, the unleavened bread and wine, represent Jesus’ broken body and His shed blood. The baptism by immersion shows perfectly the death, burial and resurrection of Christ. It also is parallel to what happens to a believer when he accepts Christ as Lord and Savior as described in 2 Corinthians 5:17. The old life dies to sin, is buried and a new life in Christ begins.
