Baptism on the horizon

Maybe not a big deal, but I appreciate you bringing it up. I didn't think of trying to make the baptism a more intimate meeting. Maybe I can think of a way to express a desire that talks focus on Christ rather than the church without coming off too controlling.

Good question, I struggled with it too- I still believe in Jesus Christ, but post faith crisis I felt, and still feel, like a hypocrite. On one hand I was baptizing my kid into a faith that I no longer believed (I also have strong feelings about the long term message I am sending to my kids by doing so), and on the other hand, baptism is a personal commitment to Christ (and I have just as much authority to baptize my daughters and my son as anyone else).
