This post is different from most of my others, but it was a really good thing that happened today. If you are reading this and it doesn't make much sense to you, that's ok. Twelve people were baptized this morning at our church.
Baptism is just a symbol of a Jesus' death, burial and resurrection that indicates a person wants to be known as a Christian. Someone simply lowers the person being baptized under water and then lifts them back up. It's traditionally done with the person going backwards so that they have to demonstrate trust that they will be lifted up.
Each person was allowed to choose who they wanted to baptize them, and two of the guys had Omer do that for them.
