What is the quality of our response to God’s goodness to us? Do we love him with our whole heart, and what does it mean to do so?  Does that love spill over into love for our neighbour?

A special welcome today to Lola Jean Halford Knight, who joins us in the fellowship of the Universal Church today as she receives the sacrament of holy baptism.  We welcome her family and their friends, too.
