Featured Movie of the Week -- Baptism of Joshua Scott Harris and Celebration

It's time, once again, for the featured movie of the week. This week, I'm pulling out an old one from May 2004. The family descended upon Cedarville, Ohio, for the baptism of Joshie. All of Carroll's family and all of our family were present for the event. It was a great reunion.

This was probably the second movie I ever made using Windows Movie Maker, and it was with my Canon digital camera when it was brand new. I had captured all kinds of footage during the baptism and subsequent celebrations, and pieced this all together in about an hour sitting in the hotel in Morgantown, West Virginia, halfway home on the drive back. The kids were asleep, and Becky was reading, and I quietly pieced this all together with my earphones in so I wouldn't disturb anyone.

I think it's probably one of my finest pieces. Of course, the subject matter makes it highly sentimental, and only of interest to immediate family. But it remains one of my favorite movies. The Alison Krauss music in the video gives it a decidedly Christian feel, but I think it's appropriate given the subject matter and the devoutness of Carroll's family.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
