New every morning is your love, great God of light, and all day long you are working for good in the world. Stir up in us desire to serve you, to live peacefully with our neighbors and all your creation, and to devote each day to your Son, our Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.

Christian Initiation: Come to the Waters

Baptism and Our Ministry of Welcoming Seekers and Making Disciples

Daniel T. Benedict Jr. • October 2003

BUY Print $17.00

Come to the Waters is an invitation to pastors and congregations to make the transforming power of God in Christ accessible to all persons. This book faces squarely the emerging mission frontier and proposes a daring alternative in making the gospel accessible to all persons, especially adults who have little or no experience with the life and faith of Christians.

Part 1 focuses on welcoming and walking with persons on the journey of conversion. Part 2 provides model services and commentary that congregations may use in celebrating the stages and transitions of this journey.
