Marcus Grodi and Jim Anderson continue their study of Paul’s Letter to the Ephesians. Their discussion will touch upon the Sacraments of Baptism and Confirmation.
For many of us, our baptism, that happened many years ago, has very little present meaning. For most of us, this happened when we were babies, leaving us no cognitive memory of the event. For others of us, our baptism occurred when we were believing teenagers or adults, and sometimes only as a visible symbol of our faith, with no expectation that the rite itself had any actual effect. The same can be true for many of us who were confirmed. What did these sacraments do for us, how ought our lives to have been different afterwards, and what can we do to help others experience the fullness of their baptism and confirmation? This is part of what we will discuss today on Deep In Scripture.
