The Sacramental Basis of the Church’s Life

The Rev Alastair K Robertson, MA, BD, Minister of the Parish of Langton and Polwarth

The article argues for the restoration of the Sacraments to their central place but also that the whole of life is sacramental. Recent movements of evangelism need to be balanced by spiritual nourishment from the church which new Christians join. Baptism is discussed fully and warning given that it is not 'conversion' but the beginning of a process. Today we have finely restored chancels and well designed tables but still an absence of sacramental life. We need to talk less about fellowship of believers and make the fellowship a reality.
