Thought for 09.29.11

In sorting through a pile of old rubber stamps at the parish office today, it struck me that when we say a child is “marked as Christ’s own” in baptism that it is not unlike marking them with the rubber stamp that reads, “Property of Jesus; Do Not Remove From Church.”

Tobias, I like your thought. It fits well with Bp. Barbara Harris' words: "How can you initiate someone and then treat them like a half-assed baptized?"

In my case more often then not it would say "please return".
