2.2.1. The place of symbolism in the Church of England's baptismal liturgies Why are we here and not somewhere else? High up on the wall of the central atrium of the University of Chicago Business School there's a sign written in bright white neon lettering which asks the question "Why are you here and not somewhere else"? It's designed to remind ambitious students, eager for success, not to forget what brings them there. It challenges them to question whether they are making the best use of each day that they have in that place. I'd bet £100 that this thought has crossed most of your minds in the last couple of hours. Maybe when you were trying to find the least crinkled shirt, or tying your tie for the sixth time this week, or you were struggling to put your hair up. And I think its a fair question for all of us to ask ourselves each and every day, wherever we are and whatever we are doing. Not least on a day like this. When it comes to baptisms, for those of you who have had limited exposure to the theology behind these 'events', it's a very fair question to ask indeed. In the theological speak, today we are performing a baptismal rite. Let's work backwards through those words Rite Baptismal Performance

3.1. Rowan Williams On Christian Theology

3.1.1. Ch 12: Between the cherubim: the empty tomb and the empty throne

3.1.2. Ch 13: The Nature of a Sacrament 'There is in fact very little ground' to the idea that a sacrament 'demonstrates God's unconditional power', 'even in the most conservative strands of Catholic theology p. 197 Sacraments are 'harder to understand the more we isolate them' 'if we try to signify Go and his work be resorting to abstract expressions, talking about minds and ideas in a vacumm, we dangerously forget that we are (flesh and blood, timebound), and create a phantom world of pseudo-objects alongside our familiar ones. But the 'otherness' of God is not like that; it is more radical. And it is only by speaking and engaging with the material world in a particular way that we come to express truly and respond properly to the real otherness of God' p201 'being human, being bodily, and being a user of 'signs' are in separable'. p201 'The Last Supper is not a simple, primitive fellowship meal; as far back as we can go in the tradition about Jesus, it is seen as 'intending', meaning, the event that finally sets Jesus and his followers apart from the continuities of Israel and makes the beginnings of a new definition of God's people' p203 'It is perhaps because we are so generally inept at recognising that the meaning of our acts and relations rests, moment by moment, on God's creative grace that we so readily end up in bad-tempered confrontations of a singularly unproductive sort over 'what we do' and 'what he does' in the sacraments - as if the purely spiritual and divine could be thought of as something side-by-side with the material and human. No, the sacraments are performed, in obedience to Jesus Christ, by those already caught up in God's work, those who have received and live by God's promise: their acts in opening themselves to the converting sign of Jesus himself are the modes of receiving, not independent assaults on God by alienated, distant creatures. p206 'Our signs are created by what Christ creates - his own self as a gift of God. p206 'The Church's sacramental action is the Father's art, not our unaided reflection on human existence, nor even our attempt to render present an absent divine act or a distant promise; they are th edrawing of believers into the life of the kingdom of God. All our discussions of regeneration and sacrifice, eucharistic presence, indelible character or whatever suffer to the extent that they fail to take proper account of this utter dependence of our sign-making on that of God in Christ' p.206 'Our primary concern should be for sacramental actions rather than an attempt to focus on 'sacralized' objects' p. 206 'We do not encounter God in the displacement of the world we live in, the suspension of our bodily and historical nature. There is indeed a sense in which we meet God in emptiness and silence, in the void of Good Friday and Holy Saturday, in the darkening of sense and spirit in prayer, but we should not allow the weighty and important language of 'God at work in our nothingness' to deceive us into thinking that Good Friday is not history or that the soul in the night of contemplation ceases to be bound up in its material creaturehood. God acts in emptiness by brining resurrection and transforming union, not by lifting us to 'another wordl' p. 207

5.3.2. There is a distinctive tone of defensiveness and beligerance when the two viewpoints clash Because the other groups views on the nature and importance of the Eucharist, and implicitly the validity of the other groups' view, and therefore the validity of the other groups faith What we are really saying is 'Your relationship with God bullshit'. 'You don't know God'. 'Your faith is wrong'. You
