Unity through sacraments |

Faith & Values: Unity through sacraments | "Take one look at Martha Moore-Keish —- the black leather jacket, the blue Converse sneakers, the wide-mouthed laugh —- and the first thing that comes to mind is not liturgical theologian. Yet that is Moore-Keish's vocation.

Locally, she's an assistant professor of theology at Columbia Theological Seminary in Decatur. Nationally, she's active with the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops' Reformed-Catholic dialogue. Internationally, she is the Presbyterian Church's theologian on the Commission of Faith and Order of the World Council of Churches in Geneva, and one of only a few women at either table.

The goal of her work with the WCC is nothing less than Christian unity through the mutual recognition of sacraments. The past six years have been devoted to baptism, and the fruits of that work will be released this year.

We spoke recently with Moore-Keish about her work with the WCC."
