A joyous picture

I don’t know what the story is behind this baptism picture that I found while writing up this post for Mr. Conservative, but I like the joyousness it radiates.  (When I say “I don’t know what the story is,” what I mean is that, while I understand that it’s a full-immersion baptism, I don’t know who the people involved are.  I just like their expressions, which speak of intense happiness.)

    Joyous, yes, and reminds me of my own, forty seven years ago, but, note, wear another layer of white under the robe. You’ll be glad you did.

    Our church put us in black (choir, I think) robes….for the very reason you’re thinking of, Michael.
    Elder Russell Rose (RIP), WWII vet and a man’s man….baptized me in 1959.  A great day!
