Baptism Lessons

The first graders continue working on Baptism lessons on Sundays.


Today we talked about the importance of the priesthood, and how priesthood authority is needed for the baptism ordinance.


We talked about the example of Jesus getting baptized, and how he went in the water to be baptized by immersion.


We also talked about how our church don’t baptize before age 8, but that turning eight doesn’t mean you are ready. That’s why we are studying now, they realize, before we get to eight.


We talked about how repentance is important in preparing for baptism, how it is a choice to show Heavenly Father we accept His plan, and it is the beginning of committing to being obedient to it.


About Emily

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints since 2009. I serve as a Chaplain, and work as a counselor. I got bilateral cochlear implants in 2010, but will always love sign language. I choose books over television, and organics over processed. Nothing is as close to flying as ballroom dancing - except maybe running, when in the solo mood. I would rather be outside than anywhere else, especially at the river riding my bike or kayaking. PhD in Marriage and Family Therapy, and currently doing a post-doc in Jewish Studies and an MDiv in Pastoral Counseling. The best thing about Emily World is that it's always an adventure, even if (not so) grammatically precise. The only thing better than writing is being married to a writer. Nathan Christensen and I were married in the Oklahoma City temple on 13 October 2012, and have since fostered more than eighty-five children. We have adopted the six who stayed, and are totally and completely and helplessly in love with our family. Nathan writes musical theater, including "Broadcast" (a musical history of the radio) and an adaption of Lois Lowry's "The Giver". He served his mission in South Korea, has taught song-writing in New York City public schools, and worked as a theater critic for a Tucson newspaper.
