Saturday, January 13 saw a first-of-its-kind event at St. Luke's Messy Church. The Messy Church family gathered round to celebrate the baptism of 4-year-old Carter Reddy. All the Messy crafts and activities focused on the theme of "Jesus, the Light of the World" and each person held a candle to share in that theme as Carter was baptized. The celebration presented an opportunity to explain the triune nature of God and of holy baptism in a uniquely "Messy" way. The Ven. Richard King, Rector of St. Luke's, placed three circles on the floor to remind us that baptism is done in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. One circle held the baptismal water, a candle was placed in another, and in the third were the baptismal oil and a dove. All who took part said it was a profound blessing to be part of this ceremony with Carter and his family.
