W 165 Thanksgiving for the Gift of a Child: A Commentary on the Common Worship Service

The Common Worship service of Thanksgiving for the Gift of a Child is significantly different from the corresponding services in both the ASB and the BCP.

This commentary and guide explores the theological issues at stake, the relation between this service and Baptism, and how the service itself developed as a result.

It puts all this in the context of pastoral ministry, offering practical examples of how to use this service as a natural bridge between church and community that offers great opportunities to explore faith.
