The Deacon's Bench

Once again, the subject is baptisms.

Caller: We have people from overseas visiting and I’d like to have our baby baptized while they’re here. Do you have any room in October?

Deacon: Actually, no. October is booked solid. We try to limit it to eight babies, and we’ve already got 12. We can do November or December, though.

Caller: Tell me, Deacon, how much you charge for a baptism?

Deacon: We don’t charge, but there’s a suggested donation of $75.

Caller: Okay. Will, say, $250 get me a baptism in October?
