The Only Time I've Apologized to Someone After Baptizing Them

The Only Time I've Apologized to Someone After Baptizing Them February 17, 2015

This past Sunday I had a pretty good idea of what it would feel like to baptize in a river during winter. The water heater for our baptistry didn’t work properly, which I discovered fifteen seconds before I baptized Nikki. It was cold. And I mean cold. My legs started feeling okay after a minute, but that was simply because they had gone numb and I had lost all feeling.

And I was staying above water! I felt horrible for Nikki, who was about to get a baptism she would never ever forget. Here’s my reaction to the temperature. Thankfully Nikki was a great sport and didn’t let the cold ruin her incredible experience (I’ll show her baptism video Friday as our Hope Story). After she’s out of the water, you hear me mumbling something to her. That’s the only time I’ve ever apologized to someone immediately after baptizing her.
