A Weblog Dedicated to the Discussion of the Christian Faith and 21st Century Life ___ I do not seek to understand that I may believe, but I believe in order to understand. For this also I believe, –that unless I believed, I should not understand.-- St. Anselm of Canterbury (1033-1109)

Baptism, Water, and Clothing-- A prayer from the People of Haiti
Lord, take us to the creek,
just as my wife went yesterday
to the creek.
She took off her dress,
beat it with a paddle,
bathed herself in the water.
She dried her dress in the sun,
put it on,
and came home to me
