James' Dedication

While Maggie was away, the latest baby dedication was planned at church. There has been a huge (and ongoing) baby boom at CBC, so baby dedications are a crowd event these days!
 Here we are!
While we call it a baby dedication, it really is a parent dedication - we as parents making a declaration to our church that we are deciding to raise our children with biblical values and truths. There is nothing we want more as parents than for James to give his life to Jesus. He is The Way, The Truth, and The Life. We can't make him a believer, but we hope to live out the Gospel in a way that is real to him (and Maggie), so that Jesus is reflected through us, and not just a lip service or Sunday morning ritual.
