Pause for Thought from Rev'd Rob Gillion
Chris, what an exciting morning it’s been. Everything a first. Now it’s me offering the first Pause for Thought. There’s a first time for everything. So its appropriate that this last Sunday the theme was the Baptism of Jesus. It was the sign of his new ministry. A voice from heaven was heard ‘This is my beloved son in whom I am well pleased’ – and a dove was seen descending upon him offering peace, love and joy and confirming he was the right man for the job.
So to confirm that you’re the right man for the job I’ve brought in some holy water to sprinkle the studio and a bucket to douse you in! The wetter the better! Baptism is all about refreshing and renewing a spirit which has always been there, but is now focused on a new chapter and a new challenge.
Not so long ago I baptised a lovely little girl, Sophie, four years old – when I invited her up to be blessed she just refused. She simply pouted. Granny tried to bribe her, Mum threatened her. Just for a moment I thought perhaps we should postpone – but the family were there the Church was packed. So I stepped down from the font enfolded her in my arms stepped back up and gave her a good soaking! We were both absolutely drenched! I sat her on the edge of the font and she gave me such a wonderful look and a smile as if to say alright you win. The adventure had begun. A baptism of fire? Well risk after all is part of life.
The risk had been worth it. She was cleansed, renewed, and forgiven through this act of baptism, a brand new start - and as she took her baptismal candle her face lit up with joy. A magic moment of stillness, when everyone wished the best for her.
It was such fun, at the same time significant and very special.
A baptism is always performed in community surrounded by friends and family. I am sure that this is the first of many programmes which will be surrounded by millions of friends listening in the morning, wanting to start the day with a smile.
So congratulations on this new start and look forward to many fun times and magic moments, and I hope that we’ll enjoy Pausing for Thought together for many years to come.
And of course what better way to celebrate than crack open a bottle of champagne – the wetter the better. Congratulations!
