Four years ago on Good Friday, Geoff & I were baptized in the Pacific Ocean. It was a day like today (rainy) but it was an experience I won’t forget. Surrounded by friends, we made the public declaration we were Christ followers.
Only appropriate to close with a scripture quote.
It was now about the sixth hour, and darkness came over the whole land until the ninth hour, for the sun stopped shining. And the curtain of the temple was torn in two. Jesus called out with a loud voice, “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit.” When he had said this, he breathed his last.
The centurion, seeing what had happened, praised God and said, “Surely this was a righteous man.” When all the people who had gathered to witness this sight saw what took place, they beat their breasts and went away. But all those who knew him, including the women who had followed him from Galilee, stood at a distance, watching these things.
