I just received an email letting me know a friend has just been baptized and he feels as if a great was lifted off his shoulders.

I had no idea what to say back.........:bnghd:

The best I could do was congat's and I am glad you are happy, you are a good person and deserve to be happy.

Anyone out there got a more graceful way of saying this???

I think you did fine. I would have said something similar.

I'm sure you, like me, are always happy when someone seems to find peace in his life.

Tell your friend his big brother says hi.... but no on a serious note, as a a/theist (dunno your religious preference if any) you would not understand what it is like to know the grace of God is upon you..... It IS the best feeling of the world.... But honestly, I am not the person to give advice on what YOU should say lol

tell him this...

"Who has two thumbs and is real happy for you?"

(point to yourself with your thumbs)

"This guy!"

Mon... you must forget what your personal feelings are on the matter and concentrate on your friend and being his friend.

Just tell him you are pleased that he is happy and has done something that he feels with benefit his life,

focus on the "happiness"

I don't think you can get much more graceful than that.

But to really show how happy you are for him; I suggest sending him a nice platter of dried fruit and perhaps some nice Brie cheese.

Successful Baptisms tend to make one a little peckish.

I usually say something like "I wish you all the best on your chosen path" and "ongratulation"

What you said was good

dont act like its satan for god sake!
me an 90% of the population were baptised when we were born.
the important thing is that HE feels good,the beliefs not so much.

You misunderstand me.

I meant what is the proper or polite thing to say.

I did not mean to imply i was offended by his religious choices.

Just did not know what would be the proper thing to say back is all.
