Not quite one-year-old Dante Ezequiel Flores seems to be reaching out to the Rev. Mary Barnett at his baptism last Sunday (June 6). His christening was the second in week at Holy Trinity, but Dante's journey to the baptismal font was far from routine. His mom Danisha (holding candle) spent five years on bed rest due to a heart ailment. She became pregnant with twins, but Dante's brother died in utero. The surviving twin was born prematurely, and it was a while before Dante could come home to Danisha and dad Lukas (holding his son). Yet there Dante was at our church last Sunday, full of life -- indeed, a new life in Christ. Let us welcome the newly baptized!
