Trusting Always



“Will you be responsible for seeing that the child you present is brought up in the Christian faith and life?                                               I will with God’s help”                                                                                                                                                                  (Book of Common Prayer, 302)
As parents we make some big promises when we bring our children to be baptized.Each promise reminds us how we are called to live our own lives as Christians. I thought we could take some time this Lent to examine the promises we make and to have a discussion with our children about what each promise means in their lives.
The first of these promises is listed above. I wish I could tell you that bringing the kids to church every Sunday was enough. I wish I could say showing up on Sunday morning will insure that you child grows up knowing God and their lives will be transformed by this one simple act of church attendance.
