A traditional theology of baptism does not always make sense to people today. Ideas of salvation, eternal life, forgiveness of sins etc is often difficult to connect to daily life experiences. A promise of salvation for those who are baptized raises the question for the status of the non-baptized. Are there resources in a theology of creation that can be exploited for a more relevant baptismal theology? And how can the conversation with ecumenicalpartners be helpful, for example with Orthodox theologians?
