"If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory." - Colossians 3:1-4

What are the essential elements of the Christian life? What are the things that set you apart from other religions and distinguish you as uniquely Christian? What if we have forgotten why these are an important part of being Christian? What if we really never had a great understanding of them but just didn't want to go to hell when we died? Are you a Christian? What sets you apart and how is your life marked by the elements of Baptism, Eucharist, Bible reading, Prayer, and Calling?  Why do we get dunked in the river? Why do we share a meal together each week? Why does it seem that Christians just can't help but pray? Why are we a people so committed to the Bible? And finally, why are Christians always going out and doing stuff to help the world?
