Vol. 12 No. 2 (2011): Baptism into Christian vocation
From the editorial:
The rite of baptism marks a key moment in each person’s rich and complex experience of saying yes! to God, of claiming God’s orientation for her or his life and entering into the priestly life of service and blessing. I am convinced that our commitments to be a missional church, to develop a culture of discerning call in our congregations, and to ensure the cultivation of strong leadership for Anabaptist-Mennonite congregations will flounder, if not fail, if we do not attend holistically to baptism, vocation, and ministry as facets of faith for everyone.
