    he's getting so big so fast! love his long blond hair.

    here's the wording I used (and if you PM me your email address, I'll email you a copy so you can see it - it has our phone number so I can't post it)

    We're joyfully bringing our son into the love and grace of God's family. We invite you to celebrate the baptism of Jack Ryan.

    then the date, time, location. then we listed parents and godparents name followed by a blurb about refreshments at our house and RSVP info.

    "being" sounds more formal to me and that is what I would use.

    I like the way Gwen worded it. That is a hard thing to word.

    I would use being or baptism of. Just sounds better to me.

    I do think "being" is the correct word to use.

    I just asked my husband (he's a Missouri Synod Lutheran Pastor) and he said while either is correct, being sounds more formal. He also said if it was him, he'd write "The baptism of xxxx into the Name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit" but again, he's a Pastor so he likes to really throw it out there.

    LOL Zene. I get specific for my husband. He's REALLY keen that people know EXACTLY which Lutheran he is.
