The theme for our regular Family Service on January 11th was 'The Baptism of Christ'
so it was appropriate that we had a baby for actual baptism - a little girl Christened Anika.

In his sermon our rector, Rev'd Tony Lomas
, reminded us that John the Baptist baptised people in the river Jordan for the forgiveness of sin (disobedience of God's rules) but that John pointed out that he only baptised with water as a symbolic washing clean but that one would come after him who would baptise with the Holy Spirit - which of course was Jesus. It's in the knowledge that baptism today involves a traditional washing away of sin and receiving the Holy Spirit that we baptised Anika. (Return to Top)
