How Early Christian Baptismal Imagery is relevant Today

“Baptism celebrations can give people a lens, or filter, through which they view the world,” says David Rylaarsdam, professor of historical theology at Calvin Theological Seminary in Grand Rapids, Mich. Because theology comes alive through visuals, sounds, tastes, smells, touch and movement, his family celebrates “baptism birthdays.”  It is one way to recover and incorporate ancient imagery and practices that can foster a more fully lived faith. Learn more about early baptismal imagery and how it may be incorporated into your faith life in an essay prepared by Joan Huyser-Honig for the Calvin Institute of Christian Worship, an initiative devoted to renewing Christian Worship.
