A little thought about Baptisms
We had a fantastic baptism service this morning, but last night as I was going to sleep I was reflecting on one little (OK, actually MASSIVE) peeve (is that how you spell it – please inform) that I have with the occasional couple that come to our baptism prep.
My issue is with when people say “We’re having little Johnnie baptised because, although we don’t really believe, we want him to have the option to grow up and make his own choice. By being baptised he gets a start on the Christian route if that’s what he chooses”. And I feel like I want to say to the mum and dad of little Johnnie “Well if you’re so keen on giving him EVERY opportunity, my mate Rabbi Isaac can also sort out a circumcision for him…..”
