Celebrating with Baby Q (Quentin) and his family was a wonderful way to start my new year. I had the pleasure of marrying Quentin's parents, Emily and Kurt several years ago. I was thrilled when they asked me to baptize their first born, Ches. And now, a few years later they contacted me again. In Emily's words, she wanted me to 'complete the spiritual circle' by baptizing Quentin.
Heavenly Father, Divine Mother, Spirit of the Universe we ask for Your blessing here today. Protect this family and community and surround us with infinite unconditional love. Keep us mindful that the miracle of new life is both a gift and path back to you.
Creating a personal ceremony is not always an option and many couples appreciate the opportunity to include wording that voices their truth and speaks to their heart.
Quentin was baptized in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. 'With the blessings of the Divine mother, the compassion of the Buddha, the protection of Maa Durga, we call you our own. Quentin, God has called your name. You are connected, protected, loved, and blessed. You are forever a child of God and one with the Divine, a member of God’s family.'
