  1. Charlie Henrickson asks “Will you get an Ablaze! point for that, Mollie?”

    Unless they’ve changed their criteria, no. Baptisms do not count as a “critical event.”

  2. Baptized into Your name holy,
    O Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
    I claim a place, though weak and lowly,
    Among your saints, your chosen host.
    Buried with Christ and dead to sin,
    Your Spirit now shall live within.


  3. Water blood and Spirit crying, by their witness testifying to the One whose death-defying Life has come with Life for all!
