#love of a #black #genderfluid prob. considered #disabled man, pondering Acts 8

When I did a search for the bulletin cover for this week I noticed something. I could find many artworks entitled “Baptism of the Eunuch” for the bulletin (that’s where I got today’s bulletin cover), but no children’s worksheets. As you may or may not know, we are trying, very hard, to be more inclusive … Continue reading

Baptized Ash: The Stars, the moon & me

We are brief, like flowers, like a breath of air. We are mortal, here one moment and gone the next.

And the moment they call on God (we would call this … Continue reading

Baptismal advice for parents

Baptismal advice for parents Baptismal advice Lastly, and possibly most importantly, read to your children and provide them with quality children’s literature.  There is no substitute for stories and the life of the imagination for a child’s developing mind.  Children need to be able to encounter on their own terms (not in a preprogrammed “entertainment” … Continue reading

Batman and Baptism

Nakedness

A synopsis of Sunday’s Sermon Naked Babies are beautiful–I’m pretty sure everyone can agree that naked babies are beautiful. Maybe this was why baptisms used to be done naked because (although a little dangerous) what is cuter than a naked baby? God made us, as all good mothers, God made space for us and then … Continue reading
