We had a baptismal service at church last week, and afterwards Katie, my 10-year-old, mentioned something interesting.
The pastor had asked anybody who wanted to be baptized (we're in a believer-baptism tradition church) to talk to him after the service. Katie said this:
"I really felt like I should go talk to Pastor Ernie, but then I remembered that when you're baptized you have to tell your story. I don't have much of a story yet, so I think I'll wait until I'm twelve."
To which I replied,
"And just what are you planning on doing in the next year and a half?"
I wonder if I should be worried.
