Really busy around the house this week because the young heathen is getting baptised this Sunday, which means all sorts of folks are going to be showing up here, at our previously quite chaotic house. We had a lot of stuff still sitting around from when we moved in a few months ago. I wish we were the type that believed that baptism magically saves the soul of the recipient. That would make it all worth it. Ceremony symbolizing the embrace of the congregation? Worth all the cleaning and shuffling around? Maybe.
