january



January is really weird in our little pocket of California. It's actually one of my favorite times of the year to be outside. The weather is great, not too cold, sunny and just right for an afternoon at the park. On Friday Darren did a baptism in our pool and Jason was so excited about swimming that he just had to jump in afterwards. Crazy, right? Swimming in January... but it is absolutely possible in our heated pool. (And yeah, our church does baptisms in swimming pools... our church of the warehouse doesn't have a dunk tank and somehow I think getting a permit from the city to build one would be impossible. So for now we do swimming pool baptisms, it's a step up from the little country church we were at that did baptisms in a huge trough. If only the Salinas River was above ground, that would be cool.)

I've seen baptisms in a 30 gallon trash can. Of course we used a clean liner. But prison is full of improvisation

I got baptised in a swimming pool in August...no heater. COLD? You bet.

But I don't think it is weird to go swimming in January...early this month we went to the beach and it was nice. It is kinda odd, I suppose. I too like this time of year!

Hope you have a great rest of the week!
