I am posting this from a beautiful resort in Northern Wisconsin where my family and I have escaped to for a few days of recovery and some long overdue relaxation.

Between my mild sunburn and the beer brats that we abused our bodies with earlier this evening I have managed to find a few minutes to pop the Mac open and take advantage of our WiFi connection. Of course, we keep finding ourselves drawn back to reminiscing on the incredible weekend we had back at The Orchard with all of you at our BBQ & BAPTISM!


Without a doubt, this one will go down in my book as a historical weekend for both our church community and for every person who took the significant step of water baptism Sunday afternoon.

For me, one of the most memorable moments of the baptism was watching entire families getting baptized together. To see so many families taking such huge steps TOGETHER was one of the coolest things I have ever seen! I especially loved watching some of the family members baptizing each other. That was incredible!

As soon as we get some more pics, we’ll throw them up to share. Until then, we’d love to hear your thoughts/feelings/feedback/etc… on the exciting weekend we all had.

Back to my book and then to bed… Goodnight friends!
