One of the teachers in my congregation cornered me on the way out of the church last Sunday. She was giggling about something that happened the first week of school. She said one of the little boys in her class proudly announced to her that he was being baptized the next Sunday. She told him that was really great, and he told her he was going to take his swim goggles.
She was curious about why the youngster would want to wear his goggles during the Baptism service. When she asked, the boy replied, “So I can see my sins washed away!!!”””
