Baptize - 13th Day of Advent

The Baptismal Covenant is something that we, as Episcopalians renew periodically.  The question is - do you think about the response as much as you did the first time you did this voluntarily (generally at confirmation)?  Before you go to look at the answers, here's your meditation for today.  Answer these questions, in your own words - gut reaction - and then think about it:

1.  Do you believe in God the Father?

2.  Do you believe in Jesus Christ, the Son of God?

3.  Do you believe in God, the Holy Spirit?

4.  Will you continue in the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in the prayers?

5.  Will you persevere in resisting evil, and, whenever you fall into sin, repent and return to the Lord?

6.  Will you proclaim by word and example the Good News of God in Christ?

7.  Will you seek and serve Christ in all persons, loving your neighbor as yourself?

8.  Will you strive for justice and peace among all people, and respect the dignity of every human being?

Activity for the Day:  Make a card for someone - could be a Christmas card, a Hanukkah card, a birthday card for a friend - or a birthday card for Jesus.
