Dedication Sunday

On Sunday, April 10, Marryn was dedicated at University Christian Church.

Our denomination practices believer’s baptism, so dedicating is a way to include a baby in the church community. Essentially, the parents pledge to raise the child in a Christian home and the congregation pledges to support them in their efforts - all in a public forum.

We were fortunate enough to have a large family presence in the congregation.

My mother made Marryn’s elegant dedication gown - definitely an heirloom from here on.

All went like clockwork. Marryn made her return to the church stage with grace and wonder, no crying. I on the other hand boo-hoo’ed like a baby. It’s that darn pipe organ! Every time I hear it the waterworks come on.

All in all, it was a beautiful Sunday celebrating the beginning of Marryn’s relationship with the church.
