The January 5 edition of The Living Church is available online to registered subscribers. This edition features an essay by Calvin Lane and Rob W. Courtney, priests in the Diocese of Louisiana, on baptismal theology. They write:

Since the 1970s and early ’80s a chorus of theologians, building on the current prayer book (now 34 years old) and the ecumenical consensus that made it possible, have stressed that baptism must be seen as foundational to the Church’s being, that the celebration of a baptism simply cannot be a private affair, and that the congregation has a serious and solemn role to play not only during the administration of the sacrament but also in the newly baptized Christian’s continued growth into the full stature of Christ.
