Baptism in Del Valle

Baptism in Del Valle

Our oldest grandchild was baptized by immersion in church today. I’m very pleased she was willing to make this public profession of her Christian faith. It was quite a few years ago that I was baptized—same church, but in an outdoor, very large baptistry called Lake Del Valle.

Whenever I recall the scene this photo records, I think of the Randy Travis song, Pray for the Fish. The theology is all wrong, but I find it funny.

Pray for the fish
They won’t know what’s coming
When the sin starts rolling off the likes of him
Lord be with em, they ain’t done nothin’
Please won’t you leave them just a little bit ’a room to swim
Pray for the fish.
