A message about baptism

As Mother Church employees have traveled the world meeting with members, one interesting thing they’ve learned is that in some countries people may be asked to provide evidence of baptism in order to participate in certain public activities, such as voting or school attendance. Since baptism has an important and specific meaning in the teachings of Christian Science, it caused us to think about what such a statement might look like. While your branch church may find a different approach, here’s one example we hope might help our readers to think of baptism in a fresh way. 

— Nathan A. Talbot, Clerk of The Mother Church
