Looking ahead to my own sons baptism this coming Sunday, these words from Russel Moore brought me a chill of wonder:

When I was baptizing people every week in a traditional baptistery in a Southern Baptist church, I learned to repeat something I had heard from an old preacher in my tradition: to end the baptisms by turning to the congregation and saying, “And yet, there is room for more.”

“Room for more” sounds like leaven growing in a loaf, a non zero-sum game, an economy of abundance, the Kingdom of Heaven.
