Dedicating Our Children to God
What a privilege! Yesterday, Joel and Sarah-Kate dedicated their newest children to the Lord. It is something that we take seriously and is not just a routine, ritual, or formality. Joel and Sarah read vows to their children and Pastor/Papa blessed them. Pastor/Papa charged their parents, their brothers, the godparents, the grandparents, and the congregation. He gave Deonte and Rhema a little Bible and charged Joel with reading and teaching the Word to them.
"Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward."
Of course, we also had a great reception/celebration/party afterwards. We are so thrilled to have Deonte and Rhema in our family!
