Baptism decorations are an elegant way to celebrate the rite of passage into the family of God.
To give a little history, the word “baptism” is Greek for “to immerse or dip.”
This ancient rite was originally adapted from the Jewish faith and performed by priests at the temple to cleanse a person making him whole in God’s eyes.
The person being cleansed was required to bring the appropriate offering to the priest, such as doves, lambs, or simply grains.
In return, the priest made a statement to God before washing the unclean person in water, oil, or perfumes at the temple.
This process was symbolic since the impurities were transferred from the person to the water allowing the person that was baptized to enter the Temple for worship on Saturday as the holy day.
At the start of Christianity, this practice of washing away sins continued. An
offering to the priest was not asked for, only a vow and oath of belief in the
Christian religion and all it represented.
For many families, baptizing their
child involves careful planning. The preparations include finding a church
where one feels spiritually connected, along with the ideal reception location
and the perfect baptism decorations. Baptism decorations are available in a
variety of colors, designs, and themes. With so many choices, your little
bundle of joy’s celebration will definitely be one to remember.
