The Spirit that gives this new life has always been in us.  But one day we became aware of it, and said Yes! to it, and that was our moment of baptism.  Or maybe our baptism was more gradual, a slow wakening over time, a dawning awareness.  All we know is this, that before baptism we had goals and priorities, then during and after our baptism our goals and priorities shifted.  The Greek word for baptism means to be submerged or immersed.  So we found ourselves immersed in a new reality, a new life.  [prettyfilelink size=”” src=”” type=”pdf”]what_is_baptism[/prettyfilelink]
