WELCOME ETHAN It only seems like yesterday that we were baptising Isaac. His younger brother has since arrived on the scene, and so we join with James and Vicky as they celebrate the baptism of their second son, Ethan. The welcome doesn’t just extend to the newest Simpson family member though! We hope that all the family and friends who are here in support of Ethan feel an integral part of today’s service.
Here are some words from the French Reformed Church’s liturgy on baptism – Ethan’s a wee bit small to digest them at present, but we pray that he will some to know the truth of them in time.
‘Little child, for you Jesus Christ has come, he has fought, he has suffered…For you he uttered the cry “It is finished!” For you he rose from the dead and ascended into heaven and there he intercedes – for you little child even though you do not know it. But in this way the word of the Gospel becomes true. “We love him, because he first loved us.”’
