My baptism, 9 August 1998
On a beautifully hot and sunny summer's evening - though the water was still a touch on the nippy side - I finally took the plunge, literally, and was baptised by full immersion.

We were therefore buried with Him through baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.
Romans 6:4 (NIV)

With kind thanks to Phil Lucas for the lovely card from which these pictures and words were taken, and for supplying the original digital photographs of the baptism. It was a wonderful surprise to receive such a touching and lasting souvenir of this very special day.
