The baptism today was at a 9.30 service, and at the invitation of the family we all went over to the village hall after the service for brunch - bacon rolls and sausage, tea, muffins, etc. Fabulous! The whole atmosphere of the service & afterwards was very upbeat - I do love to see a full church!
Now I'm wondering how to suggest 'brunch' to more baptism families??? - though we do have a tradition in one of the churches of an iced baptism 'cake' which is also a lovely idea. No wonder Jesus spent so much time eating with people.
