Product Description

United Methodists and the Sacraments is designed for use with any group of adults interested in learning more about how United Methodists understand and practice the sacraments of Holy Baptism and Holy Communion. Writer Gayle Felton, guides us through the rituals and practices of both these sacraments in order to help us understand their life-enriching value.

She reminds us that our lives in Christ are grounded in baptism and sustained by holy communion. In baptism God claims us and makes us members of Christ's body, the church. In Holy Communion God offers grace and strength for our spiritual journey. We are truly called to live the sacraments of baptism and holy communion, as well as to receive them.

Each chapter offers a comprehensive look at what United Methodists believe and how United Methodists practice the sacraments. Questions for discussion and reflection with helps for how to use the book in small group settings are provided.

Gayle Carlton Felton is an elder in the North Carolina Annual Conference of The United Methodist Church. She has served on the faculties of Meredith College and Duke Divinity School and was the principal writer for the committees that developed "By Water and the Spirit: A United Methodist Understanding of Baptism" and "This Holy Mystery: A United Methodist Understanding of Holy Communion." These documents were approved by the 1996 and 2004 General Conferences as the denomination's official interpretive positions on the sacraments.
