The scene is one familiar to Christians. A pastor stands next to a man partially submerged in water. With “Amazing Grace” playing in the background, the preacher intones, “As a confession [sic] of your faith that Jesus Christ is head of your life… I baptize thee in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.”
Amazing grace, how sweet the sound That saved a wretch like me. I once was lost, but now am found; Was blind, but now I see.
The words are, no doubt, familiar to many of us who learned to sing the hymn “Amazing Grace” at a young age.
