Sustaining Christian Community through the Sacraments

Baptism and the Lord’s Supper are the focus of some of the most extraordinary moments in Christian worship. Understanding why we celebrate these two sacraments informs how we celebrate them. In this reflection, Rev. Michael J. Clingenpeel locates the sacraments in his perception of the church as a living, growing, changing community. The sacraments are signposts in the midst of change and sojourn that help Christians remember where they are going, and why. Accompanying questions make this essay a suitable leadership team study or discussion group topic. Find it on the website of Faith & Leadership, an offering of Leadership Education at Duke Divinity.
