I really enjoy Carl D’Agostino’s posts, often very topical and always funny.
Jessica and I recently began Worshipping anew in Hope Uniting Church Maroubra Junction. Very glad to leave the Sacramental Churches behind to a place where Scripture is paramount and only the two sacraments of Baptism and Communion are practised, those ordained by christ himself.

And some let you choose! In the Uniting Church of Australia it is possible to give a blessing to a baby, for later Adult Baptism.There is also Infant Baptism, sometimes called Christening.Adult baptism is preferred since the one being Baptised can made their own statement of Faith.
Likewise the Baptist Church’s prefer Adult Baptism, or Believer’s Baptism; And for the 10 years or so I spent there I was required to be re baptised as an Adult since they do not recognise Infant baptism at all.
I have to say that though it is not Biblically correct, that a Believers baptism is a very special affair made when one has witnessed one’s conversion to Christianity, mode a la Baptist Church.
