Main Title

Extending the Sacraments to Children: Insights from the Theology of T. F. Torrance

Abstract

This article explores T. F. Torrance'?s theology of the sacraments as it relates to the ecclesiological question of the inclusion of children in the worshipping community. Part I defines worship dialogically? with reference to the person and? work? of Christ. The sacraments provide the context to d?iscuss humanity'??s participation in the dialogue in Trinitarian terms. Part II considers the implications with respect to questions regarding a chil?d's faith and k?nowle?ge. ?In conclusion,? the article proposes how Torrance might answer the pastoral concerns outlined at the outset?, and suggests further questions that might b?e asked? in the desire to be inclusive with integrity?.
