“Rites of passage in Christianity allow adherents to obtain deeper knowledge and beliefs about their religion”
How does this statement explain the significance of baptism for the Christian community and the individual?
Baptism allows adherents of Christianity to acquire a deeper understanding and resonate with the beliefs of their religion. Baptism refers to the religious rite of passage involving the application of water in association with an individual’s admission to the Christian Church. It is a significant rite practiced by a majority of Christian adherents with the exception of Quakers and followers of The Salvation Army. In many denominations, baptism is performed on young children and is accompanied by name-giving, referred to as ‘Infant Baptism’. These denominational families include Catholics, Eastern and Oriental Orthodox, Anglicans, Lutherans, Presbyterians and other Reformed denominations, Methodists and some Nazarenes, as well as the Moravian Church. Another form of baptism involves the initiation of adults and is referred to as ‘Believers Baptism’ practised by a minority of Christians including Protestants and followers of the Pentecostal and Baptists sect. A key concept in believer's baptism is that a credible profession of faith must be given by the recipient before baptism. The American Baptist Church, for example, declares: "We insist that baptism be administered only to those who have the maturity to understand its profound significance: resurrection to new life in Christ”. All major denominations use water as a part of the purification ritual. For some this may involve full immersion (dunking)- as practised in Catholicism and Orthodoxy, while Mennonites and the Amish practice affusion which involves the sprinkling of water.

Change and Cultural Case Study Ii

...Change and Culture Case Study II Change and Culture Case Study II Mergers are more than just two companies joining together to become one. There are additional changes that have to take place in order for the merging facilities to exist as one. The new organization mission and vision must be defined and communicated. There will also be a need to redesign and redirect nuisances, task, and job performance measures. The merger between Health care Facility A and Health Care Facility B was initiated six months ago. The merger created the Open Health Care Facility. This facility was forced to eliminate jobs because of duplicate positions and job responsibilities. Each health care facility contributed their own area experts in all fields and to align the staff with the budget allocations, staffing was reduced tremendously. There have been changes in the organizational structure, changes and enhancements in processes and production, and changes in the quantity of staff members. The newly structured administration sees a need for a redesign of patient care delivery because of all the changes and enhancements implemented. A suggestion was made to use the universal worker concept. Consider the words universal worker in a health care facility. This could mean that one person is capable of doing all task in every position and department. Can you say “burn out”? Burn out of employees could be one reason why the universal worker model often failed in other......

Chapter Ii in Study Habits

...CHAPTER II REVIEW OF RELATED LITERATURE The review of related literature of this study identifies how fear and interest, together with the students’ study habits can affect their performance in various subject matters, specifically, mathematics. To begin this chapter, the researchers will define the variables involved in the study, namely, fear and its types, interest, study habits and mathematics. The researchers will also examine other research studies and articles that show how these variables are related. This chapter ends with the summary of literature review. Mathematics as defined, is ”the group of sciences (including arithmetic, geometry, algebra, calculus, etc. dealing with quantities, magnitudes, and forms and their relationships, attributes, etc., by the use of numbers and symbols.” Ernest (1989) mentioned that learning mathematics involves more than basic knowledge of facts, skills and procedures. He added that it has a crucial involvement of conceptual structures, the general strategies in solving problems, attitudes towards the subject and appreciation of mathematics. According to the latest Gallup youth survey conducted in 2004 (as cited by Saad, 2005), the subject that the teenagers find most difficult in school is mathematics. Thus, Saad(2005) said that it is not surprising how the subject has the lowest performance rate. The reasons were not mentioned, however, Stites (1993) said that......

...Change and Culture Case Study II Marla Jennings HCS/514 July 15, 2013 Vinnette Batiste, PhD., MBA Change and Culture Case Study II To adjust to greater competition and pressures of obtaining increased organizational efficiency and cost containment, many organizations have begun to examine strategies related to restructuring and downsizing to maintain organizational viability. These processes have included mergers and acquisitions, and redefining occupational roles of workers within the organization. Consequently, successful management of the structural change process can be daunting and overwhelming if not handled in an organized and thoughtful process. Those who are responsible for the process must recognize the barrier that may be hindrances to conception and implementation of the change process These barriers include: (a) lack of concise and coordinated planning/goals, (b) resistance to change within the organizational workforce, (c) failure to consistently evaluate the progress of the proposed change within context of the entire system, and adjust methodology as necessary.   Thus, in order to achieve a balance between achieving organizational goals and addressing the uncertainty that may occur in the workforce, organizational leaders are tasked with the responsibilities of finding creative means to facilitate the mandated objectives while at the same time finding vehicles to maintain adequate levels of employee satisfaction and productivity in order to......

Study of Religion

...Study of Religion Most of the general population worldwide will almost always shy away from the conversation of religion. This topic is one that has been the source of many conflicts from war to simple differences in opinion. The study of religion is a course that a vast majority of the general population could benefit from and learn to understand. This understanding will be gained from learning to look at a religion from an academic outsiders view and from a predisposition insider’s view. Individual people will always have their own views when it comes to religion and like them my own opinion is different and it is that of fascination. The study of religion has captured my curiosity because it has given me an opportunity to fully grasp the unique religions throughout the world and to better understand another’s perspective without letting my own bias opinion show through. It's with this open-mindedness that any fear of the unknown can be resolved, and this resolution will only serve to strengthen my own religious views. Academically looking at a religion without a goal to either increase or decrease an individual’s religious faith is known as an “outsiders view”. People have the tendency to have negative perceptions on another’s faith due to the fear of the unknown and a lack of understanding. This educationally built view point allows a person to understand what is needed for them to grasp a new concept without being judgmental. Being able to step back and put your......

...2x case studies Charlotte Charlotte is ten years old and attends merry primary school. The first factor is that Charlotte’s first language is Latvian, and her English vocabulary is restricted to basic words and phrases. Charlotte struggles communicating with other children and her teacher which reflects badly on her progress in all subjects. Charlotte withdraws herself from group discussions and one-to-one conversations due to low esteem. Charlotte also suffers from anxiety which is a second factor. Charlotte has also been blind since birth and this is the final factor affecting Charlotte’s ability to communicate. Due to the age of her class peers, they don’t understand why charlotte is the way she is, so often charlotte gets mocked for being different. During communication Charlotte rarely responds and never asks questions when she is confused or struggling to complete work. To overcome these two communication barriers which are her language choice and disability, it would be useful if Charlotte had the support off a translator who would be able to inform Charlotte of information passed onto her by the teachers and other children, however in Latvian. This would help Charlotte understand what she is expected to do by her teacher but also form relationships with others. Considering charlottes language barrier long-term a mentor may be great for Charlotte.
