New Baptismal Resource for the Lending Library

By on June 1, 2022

Today Is a Baptism Day by Anna V. Ostenso can now be found in the diocesan lending library. This children’s book is brilliantly written and illustrated through a refreshing inclusive lens.  The writer, who is an Episcopal priest, beautifully depicts the journey of baptism by highlighting the family, church community, sacred texts, sacraments, and living-out of baptismal vows. The incredibly talented Peter Krueger, who illustrated the book, has been a Godly Play storyteller since 2012. His artwork captures the diversity of all God’s children made perfectly as they are. The book includes same-sex couples, people of different ethnicities, colours, and genders, and people living with disabilities. We highly recommend that you check out Today is a Baptism Day if you are interested or curious about baptism and faith formation.

The lending library has several other resources available for borrowing as well, including: labyrinths, puppets (both people and animals), vacation bible school kits, Sunday school lessons, faith formation practices for children and youth, congregational support resources, and much more!

For more information, please email CYFM program consultant Sarah Bird.
