Baptism is one of the two sacraments United Methodists practice, and it is universally recognized as a sacrament in virutally every Christian denomination. As United Methodists, we primarily practice infant baptism: a family comes in and in front of the whole congregation promises to raise their child in the Christian faith. The congregation makes a similar pledge, to create an environment where that person can mature in their faith, where that person's life is wrapped up in the life of the Church. But after the celebration of baptism stops, to often the actions of both the family and the congregations stop too. A lot about baptism is shrouded in mystery. What does it do, what does it symbolize, who should or shouldn’t get baptized, how do you do it well, and why does it matter? All this, on this Uncovered Dish.
