Baptism at Awali Church: Saturday 19th December

Baptism of Andrew Bell at the Awali Church

It was a privilege to be present for Andy Bell’s baptism by Jon on Saturday morning. About a year before Andy’s younger brother, Justin, was baptized, but he decided that he wanted to wait till after his 13th birthday. As Jon said, one of the key messages in the Christian faith is that there is no compunction in Christian discipleship. God is ready to wait for our response, when we are ready.

He linked this in with the powerful message of the Fourth Sunday of Advent: Mary’s willing Yes to God and the challenge for us all to follow her example.
