Had a baby/child dedication this past Sunday with 3 families and 4 children participating. Enjoyed anointing the children with oil and having the congregation join me in praying a prayer of blessing over the children and families. Our Scripture text for the day was Luke 1:1-80 and we considered how God prepared Elizabeth and Zechariah for the birth of John the Baptist and how God prepared Mary and Joseph for the birth of Jesus. Hopefully these thoughts of mine will challenge and encourage you. Have a Merry Christmas!
