Infant Baptism

Where the Rubber Meets the Road


I'd like to thank my colleagues, Dr. Mark Quanstrom and Dr. Carl Leth, for an excellent job of laying before us the theological issues associated with infant baptism and infant dedication.  While their articles have helped us to think through the issues at stake and may have swayed many of us to reconsider our understanding of both rites, there remains the practical application of these theological understandings.  In a brief overview I would like to address the "what now?" questions that exist for the pastor who has to deal with these issues on a regular basis.  It is my hope that this ongoing conversation will help to establish some new patterns that will address the practical issues associated with infant baptism and infant dedication.
