AN EXTRA-WET BAPTISM was experienced earlier this summer by members of Westlake Chapel at Possum Kingdom Lake. The church's baptistry is about a half-mile away from its 100-seat sanctuary--in the lake. As Pastor Tim Heavin prepared to baptize Danielle, a 9-year--old, the congregation gathered on the lakeshore sang the hymn "Alleluia." As they sang, it began to sprinkle. As the baptism progressed, it began to pour. "After we had walked back to the shore, the rain stopped," Heavin said. "But not before baptizing our whole congregation."
