The folks over at Walking the Rite Way have posted a review for catechumenate teams to help us reflect on how things are going. They take the review to a deeper level than simply asking what worked well and what didn’t. For instance, one of their review points asks how we view our own baptism:
How do we talk about Baptism with our catechumens and candidates? In her recent book Living Baptism Clare Watkins reminds us that Baptism isn’t primarily for ourselves, it should make a difference to the world:
—¦baptism is not simply about religious piety, about which group you belong to, or worship with. Baptism is not a private, devotional affair, but carries with it a demand for the transformation of life, and an empowerment to live in a changed way baptism makes a difference to the world, a difference oriented to God.”
