as part of the service at our church on sunday we dedicated samuel. to explain, in our church dedication is where we acknowledge that God has given us an amazing gift in samuel and thank Him for that. also, as samuel’s parents we promise, before God and the church, to bring him up as best we can, protecting him from harm and being examples to him of genuine relationship with God so that hopefully one day he will choose to put his faith in Jesus too. the church also promises to support us in our parenting.
it was a special moment and really lovely to be surrounded by people who love us and really will support us as we bring up our family.
