Living Baptism Daily offers ways to carry out the meaning of baptism on a day-to-day basis. Lawrence Mick invites readers to affirm and embrace their baptismal identity and to base their daily lives on that identity. By drawing on the liturgical experience of catechumens and the rest of the assembly who celebrate with them, Living Baptism Daily provides a basis for reflection, discussion, and prayer.
Chapters are "Fresh from the Font," The Journey of a Lifetime, Becoming a Christian, Called into Community, Welcoming the Stranger, Echoing the Word, Called and Chosen, Reborn to New Life, Living in the Spirit, Gathered Around the Table, What Have I Done? and Looking Back, Looking Forward.
