Sunday was Guster’s baby dedication at our church with my hubby’s side of the family. So thankfully he did not cry when the pastor took him. 🙂
We will do another dedication with my side of the family this summer when we visit. My Dad baptized my sister and I and I am so happy that my Dad is able to do my kids’ dedications (maybe even baptisms one day).
We do dedications instead of baptisms because we believe that baptisms are a public announcement from an individual that they are following Christ Jesus. Since a baby cannot make that decision we, as parents, announce our dedication to living a daily life devoted to God and telling our children about Him.
