Give thanks that, at some point in our lives, the Spirit opened our hearts and minds to the testimony and invitation of our siblings in Christ, that we might be baptized into a new life in Jesus, follow the ways and commandments of God and experience the joy of eternal life.

Baptized and Set Free                                                                                          ELW#453

4    Now with praise and thanksgiving,

we join the song.

      All are welcome! We gather

to sing loud and strong.

      Not enslaved, but set free!

From now on, all will be

      one in Jesus, one in water,

baptized and set free!
