You’ve chosen the godparents, dressed the baby in yards of white, and headed to church for the christening. Now what? What does the sacrament of baptism mean in your child’s life – and yours? In Taking the Plunge, parents explore how the Baptismal Covenant helps to shape the experience of raising children. What are you promising when you baptize your child? Why are “please” and “thank you” theological words, not simply polite things to say? Anne Kitch writes with a light touch and includes plenty of real-life stories.

A guide to children's ministry that serves families with special needs Jesus set a high standard when He said "Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven." The call is not limited to children who will sit quietly at His feet and listen, who color between the lines, who raise their hands and wait to be called upon, and who work at grade level. Children's ministries are responsible to be ready to bring children with disabilities to Jesus' feet too. Every Child Welcomeis the guide for leaders and volunteers to assist in purposeful planning and skill development for a ministry inclusive of children with unique needs. Experienced children's ministry leaders, and parents of special-needs children themselves, the authors are superbly equipped to offer a thoughtful, thorough approach to creating a positive environment for children--one where all children will be able to digest the important concepts being taught. For leaders and volunteers, Every Child Welcomewill provide the knowledge and tools to * create a welcoming environment before kids arrive * help children learn more effectively by connecting new information to what they already know * reinforce the main idea of a lesson, building background knowledge and reviewing important concepts * supplement instruction with hands-on activities to increase attention and participation * reinforce and wrap up an activity effectively

Every priest and minister knows there is more, much more, to baptism than a brief ceremony. The Book of Common Prayer makes it very clear that parents and godparents have a duty "to help the new Christians grow in the knowledge and love of God, and in their responsibilities as members of his Church." But, in this post-modern, post-Christian world, how does a parish priest overcome the obstacles our culture puts in the way of carrying out this task? Fortunately, the Rev. Claudia A. Dickson has made a study of the gifts and responsibilities that are both implicit and explicit in the rite of baptism. And she has distilled her study into this helpful and succinct volume. You will find a basic history of baptism, followed by suggested plans for study sessions for parents, godparents, candidates, or individuals preparing to renew their baptismal vows. Questions for discussion and simple group exercises are designed to ensure lively conversation and, at the same time, to ensure that participants have a solid sense of the implications of the baptismal rite. Throughout the discussion, there are useful cross-references to the Service of Holy Baptism, which is reprinted in this volume.
