The format of this post is evidence that I don't know how all this stuff works. This last Thursday's Issues, Etc. had a great pastors' roundtable segment (about 55 minutes) on the nature and number of sacraments. This is one of those critical concepts that started me moving down this theological pathway. Does God actually work through physical means? In what ways? It does strike me that the biblical view is of a sacramental faith, one in which God uses humble physical means in very real and concrete ways to implement his promises.
