Advanced Ritual Course Final Assignment

(Note from Erin: One tiny bit of information… I was taking an advanced ritual class, and this is the essay I did to complete the course.  I chose to do it on the Mormons because the instructor was also an ex-Mormon.  I am pretty proud of this piece and i believe that it stands up in the time.)

For this assignment, and with the permission of Kenn, I chose the Baptism ritual from the Mormon Church.  It’s one of the few rituals in the Mormon Church that I participated in that follows an outline similar to previous rituals discussed in this class.  I never participated in any of the “secret” rituals.  I did not choose the more common “Sacrament Ritual” also know as, bread and wine, transubstantiation, or communion, since it is so frequently done that the ritual looses all meaning in practice.
