    I was sprinkled in the Church of England, shortly after birth, and immersed under the Plymouth Brethren in 1945.

    Cheers,

    Jim

    In the baptistry of our sister church in the next town. Our church didn't have a baptismal pool because it was built for the Episcopal Church, so we borrowed the one down the road. :)

    In the baptistry of my home church, Deer Park Baptist, in Louisville, KY, on Easter Sunday 1947.

    Along with the spiritual benefits, that's also when I learned how the pastor performed the "miracle" of finishing a baptism and appearing moments later on the platform, fully dry and dressed ... the magic of "waders"!

    In a back yard, aboveground swimming pool in North Cape May NJ. Almost 4 years after I got saved. :eek: (Embarrassment)

    Saved in the South, Baptized in the North. Does that still count? :smilewinkgrin:

    In a freezing cold pond with big bunches of frog eggs in it. Even the people NOT getting baptized were shivering, and they weren't in the water. LOL It was still really cool though...wouldn't trade that experience.

    Wasn't the first time though. The interesting one was in the mormon church where my big toe refused to go under. And they don't let ya get away with that!
