I have sat in the back of the sanctuary running screens for so many baptisms I wouldn’t even begin to try to count. Seeing the happy families is always a pleasure to witness, but that’s it. Until last month, when I realized the covenant says:
“Do you accept the freedom and power God gives you to resist evil, injustice, and oppression in whatever forms they present themselves?”
What? Repeat that – I am not sure I have ever heard that before.
Do you accept the freedom and power given to you to resist evil?
Accept the freedom and power given to you to resist.
