A few weeks ago, baby Sam was baptised at Christ Church. Baby Sam is one of our own babies. That is, Sam is not from a family who have asked for baptism and we might never see again. Sam’s mum is on the Vestry and sings in the choir with her mum and her nan. Four generations of the one family and the most glamourous nan you’ll ever see anywhere!
I don’t usually allow photographs during the service but I gave in for this one. And I’m glad I did. For if I hadn’t we wouldn’t have seen this beautiful photograph of baby Sam and the candle.
