The Los Angeles Times has a fascinating post about an outdoor baptism that took place on Sunday near the oil-spill zone.
There’s a great picture. Apparently it’s an immigrant congregation, young Pentecostales from Latin America who believe in baptism by immersion. There’s something really cool (and really retro) about outdoor baptism services, but Louisiana? Now? In the Gulf? Isn’t that hazardous to one’s health?
Kudos to the Times reporter for spotting the event and writing about it.
