Here are these three different gifts of our Lutheran theological and liturgical tradition that help us bear baptismal fruit that will last, once we’re out of the font:
Luther’s baptismal theology of a daily dying and rising.
The weekly rhythm of the assembly gathering around Word and Sacrament.
The wonder and mystery that is the liturgical year.
Each of these gifts in their own way urge and equip us to get beyond the waters of an individualized baptismal security tank and into the world to serve, the very place to which the tide of our baptismal waters is meant to carry us.
