November 5, 2017, had all the potential of being an exceptional Sunday. The weather was nice and, in my denomination, it was All Saint's Sunday. On this day in our denomination, it is our custom to remember our baptismal covenant and to recite the necrology of the congregation's asking. We remember those near and dear to us who have died. I also knew that a baby girl was going to be baptized into the Body of Christ "and sealed and marked as Christ's own forever."
