Today was the christening of our neighbour's grand-daughter.

I realised that should S still want to get christened, I would have to say publicly that I would promote Christianity, that I renounce the devil and so on. I had hoped that it was just the Godparents who had to do that, but from this service it would appear not. It may be different with older children and adults tho, I suppose.

This makes me pretty certain I don't want to do this. I think she will have to wait until she is old enough to make her own decisions, make her own way to church and all that, if she remains interested.

I can't stand there and say a load of things I don't mean.

Or can I?

I don't think so. Hmmm.
