Sunday Stills: White

Getting baptized today!

In the LDS (aka Mormon) Church, when a child turns eight, they meet with the bishop to talk about what they believe and how they feel about what they’ve learned in Primary (Sunday School for the children). They tell the bishop if they want to get baptized or not. When you are baptized, you and the person performing the baptism dress completely in white. A couple of months ago, we had the opportunity to attend the baptism of two great-nephews (who happen to be twins and pretty great kids). I grabbed this shot of J before the service started. You can’t see it in the black and white picture, but his scripture case is green and black camouflage. It’s a pretty awesome scripture case.
