I entered Sunday hopeful that it would end with Mavericks, Saints and Colts victories. The Mavs had me biting my nails -- but came through at the end. The Saints had a meltdown. And the Colts? Wow! Largest comeback in Conference championship history.
So, it will be the Colts and the Bears in the Super Bowl. I will be pulling for the Colts becasue Tony Dungy is a Christian (deacon in the Church of Christ) and Payton Manning needs to have a chance to get rid of the ridiculous monkey the media has placed on him. I think he will.
I received a call at about 11 PM on Saturday night. Two of our teenagers were going to be baptized at 11:30. Now, I turn in pretty early on Saturdays. But I got up and came to the church building to witness these new births.
I guess we, in churches of Christ, are fairly unique when it comes to such events. I have dropped what I was doing to witness baptisms in hot tubs, stock tanks (on a cold November day), swimming pools -- and, of course, the church baptistry. Something about the urgency to "just do it" makes for a really special occasion.
