We had a birth celebration at church this evening for Josiah Dalton. Josiah is the newborn son of Brian and Tamara Dalton. Brian is our Youth Pastor. Josiah is about as handsome of a baby as you will ever see.
Brian and Tamera are a lovely young couple who met at Lee. She is a CPA who resigned her secure position to be a stay-at-home mom while Josiah is young. Brian graduated from Lee with a major in Youth Ministry and works a secular job to support the family.
The blessings this evening included words of assurance, hope, and direction. Josiah has been born into a home where he is loved; he will be guided, disciplined, and nurtured in the Christian faith. He was also born into a church family where he will be blessed as a special member of our community. Newly born, he is a reminder of who we are and a promise of what we shall become.
