I was honored to do an infant dedication yesterday.
And you know the drill. You ask a set of questions to the parents to promise to raise the child up in a Christian home. Then you ask a set of questions to the church as a community to commit to invest in these young souls. Now, I don’t know if EVERYBODY said, “we do” but I heard a lot of them.
Here we are, still can’t get more children’s ministry workers, vbs volunteers or nursery staff. Maybe I need to rephrase the question.
Good news is I didn’t drop the child. Of course, she refused to be held by me but I checked with the legalists, it still counts as an infant dedication. Score one more for the good guys! (Sarcastically yours, tim)
