Wade In The Water

On June 30, 2013 we held our second Wade In The Water event.  12 individuals were baptized into the kingdom.  The schedule for the morning went like this:
9:00  Registration
9:30  Instruction Time
10:30 Worship
11:30  Baptisms in Maple Lake
12:00  A Lutheran potluck followed.

This event emerged from our discussions of Vision and Mission.  How do we make baptisms accessible for those who may have concerns with institutional church?  This was our answer!

Wow!  I'm attending a three day conference on Stewardship with Adults Under 40.  I'll say more later about the topic.  This is my first experience with education surrounded by computers and smartphones.  The conference is using social media as well so I'm "connected" via facebook and twitter.  It's all quite stimulating and multi-tasking overload.  Imagine clicking keyboards, written conversations on twitter, presenters using power point, and laughter at jokes and insights!  I think I will be tired by 5:00 p.m.!!!!!!!!!
