Our little boy Zane was baptized this past Sunday, May 24, 2015, also the Day of Pentecost, at St. John’s Episcopal Church in Walpole, NH. It was a wonderful day for all of us. I hope that Zane will find his spiritual home in the Church, and that he will feel the power of God’s love for him all the days of his life. He wore his grandfather’s bowtie, and also the very same necklace that I wore when I was baptized many, many years ago. The necklace has a cross that belonged to a family friend, and a baby ring that belonged to my grandmother (Zane’s great-grandmother). What is truly special is that my grandmother was actually able to be there for Zane’s baptism, and she and I were able to take communion together for the first time in our lives. It was truly an amazing day.
