I took this picture Sunday morning as I was heading for a walk with my friend on a trail near the Chattahoochee River. A group of people was gathered by the bank of the river. As we got closer we saw people being dipped into the river and then pulled out. They were being baptized. At the edge of the river people gathered around the individuals who had been baptized, talking about them and praying over them.
Joseph Harmon (center) was one of the people who had been baptized. Joseph is 14 years old and in eighth grader. "At that moment," he explained to me after looking at this picture, "it felt like everybody was concentrating on me and praying for me. It felt kind of awkward, just how everyone was praying over me. I didn't know what to think. It was kind of breath taking."
