Water Come Down: The Day You Were Baptized
Author: Walter Wangerin, Jr.
|The sun, the cloud, the wind, the rainóall of Godís creationólend their voices to the story of how a child joins the family of God.|
The sun whispers the news to the cloud, the cloud thunders it to the rain. The wind carries the rain and its message to earth. The earth swallows the rain and new life springs up to join the chorus. At last, the whole of Godís creation gathers to celebrate the baptism of a child (the listener/reader) with a song of welcome to Godís family.
Beautifully illustrated by award-winning artist Gerardo Suzan, this is a wonderfully imagined story of Godís power and love joined in the baptism eventóa story that will grow richer in meaning each time the book is read.
Plus . . . following the story are pages of illustrated thoughts and ideas to trigger family discussion about the significance of baptism, its links to Godís biblical story, and to the lives of the readers.
