MIL has been warning the girls all week about being deligent about putting away toys/stuffed animals. I'm sure one of them will learn the hard way to keep stuff away from the puppy, however. Hopefully it will be something that is not precious.
My first hint with my puppy was the fact that, when I went to go see her at the rescue, she started chewing the shoe I was wearing!!!

Jmw, don't you already have a faith? And you've already been baptized? SO is this similar to a renewal of wedding vows? ;)
I've been a Christian in terms of my beliefs since I was 16 but I've never been baptized. My church does beach baptisms about once a quarter and I always thought it would be cool do to that, so when this one was announced my friend L and I both decided to do it. I think most Protestant denominations believe in baptism as a teen or an adult, when it's the person's choice, as opposed to Catholics who baptize babies.

Actually, it's mostly the Baptist and more "Fundamentalist" type protestant religions that do older baptisms. LUtherans, methodists, Episocpalians, etc., all do it as infants.

I don't think that's accurate.

Yeah, definitely more the "Preotestant-Related ". I grew up non-denominational and we do it as teens/adults. I can't remember for sure, but I may have been baptized Lutheran as a baby, but my parents switched when I was a toddler.

The Amish are among those who don't baptise infants. Baptists and the Amish are from the Anabaptist movement that came out of Germany several hundred years ago. Catholics baptize infants, and Lutheranism, Methodism, Presbyterianism, and Episocopal(ism?) of course are borne from Catholicism, so those mainstream protestant religions also baptise infants.

Anabaptists:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anabaptist

"The name Anabaptist is derived from the Greek term anabaptista, or "one who baptizes over again." This name was given them by their enemies in reference to the practice of "re-baptizing" converts who "already had been baptized" (or sprinkled) as infants.[5] Anabaptists required that baptismal candidates be able to make their own confessions of faith and so rejected baptism of infants."

***

However, I got my info in previous posts from college religion courses, especially the class I took on the Amish (fascinating stuff).

Incorrect. MOST do. It's in the liturgy. Infant baptism.

Former Baptist here. Can confirm they do it a as older folks. Kids can get baptized if they wish, but usually have to get re-baptized as an adult if they want to become a church member.

My SIL and her fiancé are on their way in. I feel a drink or five is in my future tonight. And tomorrow night.

She continued her FB rants today about girls running around campus in leggings (against dress code) and J called her out on it ("It's not a military school or prison.")

Also, grats on the baptism, Jam. I think if ocean baptisms had been around when I was a kid, I'd have actually done it, heh.

She is REALLY concerned with what everyone else is doing, saying, and wearing. Is this new? I don't get why she cares so much about everybody else.

Is that what your MIl is like? Is she just taking your MIL's ways and scaling them down to her age?

I think it sounds like the coolest way to get baptized as an adult.
