Anaya’s dedication

16 December 2013

DSCN0930For Namita and Gerald Johnson this last weekend has been very special. On Saturday morning together with family and friends no less than four pastors came to MBC to take part in a service of dedication and blessing for their gorgeous nine month old daughter Anaya.

DSCN0938Followed by a party this service not only brought together people from a number of different traditions but also brought a kaleidoscope of colour to a dark winters day by way of the beautiful dresses that many of them wore.

The party itself was a wonderful mix of tradition and informality: within minutes of MBC’s minister Graham Brownlee saying grace half a dozen children – led by Anaya’s six year old sister Angel – were organising their own relay races up and down the meeting area.

On Sunday, during our Nativity Service, Anaya was formally welcomed in to the life of Moortown Baptist Church.

May God bless this family.
