A BCC fanboy solicits your advice:
My eldest daughter’s baptism is coming up in a few months. I have always found the standard baptism program so generic and un-memorable. I really want to do something different and special for her. But I’m not a believer in rocking the boat just for the sake of it. I really want this to be memorable for my daughter and those attending, including many non-members and likely many non-Christians. What I’d really like would be for my daughter to walk away feeling the experience was really special, the non-members to walk away feeling like they’ve just seen something sacred that taught and lifted them up whether or not they believe it, and traditional members to walk away feeling “wow, that was different, but so right and appropriate”. Ideally I’d like the baptismal program and post-program mingling to include elements of our unique cultural background too.
