Baptismal

On June 15, 1907, William J. Seymour and Glenn Cook were in Indianapolis where they held a baptismal service. An interracial crowd of 200 people stood on the banks of Full Creek near the Indiana Street bridge, while thirteen people were immersed. Ever so objectively, the Indianapolis News reported, “Brother Seymour read and discoursed [from the Gospel of Luke]. He read a great deal and discoursed more. Brother Glenn Cook, feet freezing and head baking, stood the picture of patience, while the water continued to swirl. He watched the sun glint on Brother Seymour’s gold tooth, but gave no hint of his burning desire that those thick lips should close in solemn conclusion over the glistening ornament. It was long before Brother Seymour’s voice dropped to a gutteral “amen! Let’s sing numbah twenty-fouh! Then the martyr in the water waited for another hymn and a prayer and more talking by Brother Seymour.”
