Vol. 12 No. 2 (2011): Baptism into Christian vocation
From the editorial:
The rite of baptism marks a key moment in each personâ€™s rich and complex experience of saying yes! to God, of claiming Godâ€™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.
