At a church staff meeting in Boston, a minister begins his speech by saying:
"Baptism.All I want to talk about today is baptism. That’s the most important thing.Baptism. Baptism. Baptism."
One day around lunchtime, an older Christian and I chat in the food court of an Alabama mall. I mention something about baptism. He replies, “Maybe we should place less emphasis on baptism and more emphasis on loving God with all our hearts.”

Mary writes:Sometimes preachers would encourage people to be baptized, saying, “The clothes are prepared, the water is warm, come while we stand together and sing.”
