#UCCSynod: A General Synod Baptism

#UCCSynod: A General Synod Baptism

One in series of posts by Southern New England Conference delegates to the 34th General Synod of the United Church of Christ.

Yesterday I happened on the most amazing evidence of Gods grace. This young child of God and my sibling in Christ was being baptized with his new name as a young Transgender man. He was surrounded by loving friends and also strangers who wanted to celebrate this ritual in his life. He confirmed that he was baptized as a younger person and appreciated the significance of that event. But to have the people of God affirm him in his new identity was the church at its best. 

He also shared that his desire is to serve God in his music. He is blessed with a beautiful voice. I am so blessed to call this young man my brother in Christ. 

(He gave permission to be photographed and shared).
