This morning up in front of the alter, the basin, water, and oil was set for a baptism. The stand was very clean, very orderly, very calm.

This morning up in front of the alter, The Very Reverend Ross stood before us and paused to give an announcement. It was not a clean. Last night, a couple from our church was killed – double homicide.

To say that Dean Ross giving the news in front of a baptism basin was ironic is more than an understatement. I spent most of the service focusing on the silver and water sitting in front of me and contemplating:

We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins
We look for the resurrection of the dead
And the life of the world to come

Amen.
