The Baptismal Font is a diving board

The Baptism of Our Lord

Jesus' baptism was the launch of his ministry; and it is the launch of our ministries as well. That's why we stand together when we make our Baptismal Covenant.

And we Baptize infants and children in the Episcopal church because we believe that they have a vital ministry with us and that they have as much to teach as we have to teach them. We also believe that it is our job to help them swim in those Baptismal waters their whole life and our lives as well!
