I don't get it.

Hi, Jim! Thank you for asking.
This piece is one, in a handful tongue-in-cheek illustrations designed to poke fun at the divisions within the Church. 

According to Methodist traditions, baptism can be performed by sprinkling or pouring water, as well as immersion, while Baptists and others subscribe to the belief that baptism literally means submersion. 
… In a moment of silliness, I asked myself "What about water guns?" and was stirred to build an illustration, around it.

the Baptist "Dunking Booth" concept is the counterpart to this illustration…

Perhaps I did get it.  As a Methodist pastor I've never used the method myself. ;)

A good reminder though that we take ourselves a little too seriously sometimes!

grace and peace,

Jim,if you ever find the opportunity, please send pictures!
I would LOVE to see them.

I'll keep you in mind, if I ever get around to the "Baptist Dunking Booth" Illustration that I've been thinking up.
