Today we celebrate the addition of a new brother and six sisters to the family of faith. This congregation nurtured Piper, Sterling, Tessa, Madalyn, Ashlyn, Emily, and Natalie and taught them the covenant promises and responsibilities inherent in faithful discipleship. Today they profess for themselves their faith in Christ Jesus as Lord and Savior, call upon the Holy Spirit for guidance and strength, and claim their inheritance as children of God. Today, they take up the challenge God gave to Abraham, to walk with God and to be blameless. As we welcome them into the family, we are reminded that the everlasting covenant begun with Abraham continues with them and with every one of us because God loves us, and God is faithful to God’s promises.
