My friend Rich Lusk made a refreshing observation recently at the 20th Family Advance Conference. He wondered why we do not celebrate baptismal days, when in fact our baptisms are more important than our actual birthdays.
Baptism is our second birth; the true birth from above (John 3). How do we incorporate our rich sacramental theology into the common year? It seems that baptismal celebrations would accentuate our true births. High sacramentology leads to high feastology.
