No, I don't think baptism is dangerous.  Roll Eyes

My son is being baptized Sunday. Likewise, my state is being baptized by a tropical storm this weekend. It could make for an interesting time.

ha ha, hope the storm quietened down, and the kid didn't scream too much either.  Wink
the first baby baptism i went to, i was worried coz the kid was screaming.
but then later, he gave me a really serene look that stopped me being worried (before i was orthodox i was used to adults or older kids being baptized). he had a really serene look again today after taking Holy Communion, that's why i remembered it.  Smiley

The storm actually broke for the DL and the baptism afterward, and everyone made it there and home safely.

The baby took the baptism in stride and didn't even really fuss. He was quite calm and alert when it came time to commune.
