One week ago tonight, in front of friends and family, we dedicated our baby to God’s kingdom work and made a covenant to do our very best to raise him in the full knowledge of God’s great love and sacrifice for him.

It was unconventional:  a local retreat center,  a Tuesday night, a cook out.  But it was incredibly meaningful.  And as the generations of Christ followers prayed over this little life, we were grateful for our heritage and so thankful to be entrusted with this boy.
