While the word ‘Godparent’ is nowhere in the Bible, it is all over Christian history.
From very early on Christians began baptizing their children as a way to form healthy believers – in keeping with the admonition in the book of Proverbs which says, ‘Train up a child in the way they should go and when they are old they shall not depart from it.’
In this course, writer and teacher Nancy McLaughlin tells us:
- Why have Godparents?
- Godparents and the Bible
- The Role of Godparents
- Being a Godparent
This course is perfect for Godparents and Godparents-to-be – especially those who are out-of-town and want to know more about the role before they attend the ceremony. It’s a great way for clergy to teach and instruct from a distance.
