Lion King Baptism   Leave a comment

appropriate at Baptism…

Multimedia: could show the clip from the beginning of the film The Lion King

"The Lion King." – perhaps dated now!  But maybe still useful illustration for use at baptism… .  At Simba’s birth he is held up for all the animal kingdom to see. The wise monkey, Rafiki
"baptises", Simba. Mixing some concoction in a half coconut shell,  Rafiki then places his thumb in the concoction and then makes a mark across Simba’s head.
Simba is marked forever.

Later and following Mufassa’s death, Rafiki suggests that Mufassa is in fact still alive and can show Simba.  He takes him to a pool of water… Look… but that is only my reflection says Simba.  Look harder… Simba sees his father in the reflection.  Rafiki reflects: See your father lives in you Simba.
Our lives reflect our Father God.

"And the sign and seal of the Holy Spirit shall be placed upon her"
