The Dangerous Waters of Baptism
Rev. Chandler Stokes
This Sunday we celebrate the Sacrament of Baptism as well as Communion. When we baptize an infant in worship, we are very careful: careful not to traumatize the child, careful not to make it painful or frightening. And that is as it should be. And yet there are dangers in baptism, no matter how careful we are with the child and with the water. And we will explore some of those dangers this Sunday.
