Conversations with Samuel

(On Easter Sunday in the car, driving to church)

Samuel: "What age do you have to be to get bat-tized?"

Me: "You mean baptized?"

Samuel: "Yeah, that. What age do you have to be?"

(Stuart and I exchange a look of wonder and amazement at the heart of one so young)

Me: "There's no age limit, you just have to believe in Jesus. Do you want to get baptized, Samuel?"

Samuel: "No." (there is a long pause as we all wonder why he brought it up) "But I could totally do it if I wanted to. I can hold my breath a real long time."
