Baby Blessings have existed for centuries and have most often been known as Christenings. In times past, new babies were welcomed into their community by elders and religious figures. Parents introduced newborns to family traditions and religious practices.
While formal christenings are still held in church communities, many parents choose to have a more familial gathering in their home, park or community center and are referred to as Baby Blessings » or Baby Welcomings. As the minister, I look for ways to involve family members, friends, godparents or “guide parents ” who will be an influence in the child’s life.
The Baby Blessing » allows all present to feel the miracle, hope and infinite potential of a new life and to acknowledge everyone’s responsibility to the next generation. It gives support to the parents who realize that raising a child requires patience, juggling and lots of energy in order to experience the joy and rewards of this new life. It affirms the intertwined lives of family and friends and invites celebration with good company, food and drink.
