Episode 070: Baptism – Part 1

When I was born my mom who was not attending church and had me baptized…Anglican.  My grandmother volunteered, (and I am using air quotes here) to babysit me.  Her real goal was to have me baptized again…as a Catholic.  When I was 10 I made a public witness in my church by being baptized…well as a Baptist. So whoever is correct about this I’m covered.  But what is baptism anyway?  Why do we do it and just who should receive it?
