Good advice for dried up control freaks!

Baptism“Christianity is about water: ‘Everyone who thirsteth, come ye to the waters.’ It’s about baptism, for God’s sake.  It’s about full immersion, about falling into something elemental and wet. Most of what we do in worldly life is geared toward staying dry, looking good, not going under.  But in baptism, in lakes and rain and tanks and fonts, you agree to do something that’s a little sloppy because at the same time it’s also holy, and absurd.  It’s about surrender, giving in to all those things we can’t control; it’s a willingness to let go of balance and decorum and get drenched.”

Anne Lamott, Traveling Mercies, p.231
