We should share sacraments generously
(Here the author is referring to sharing sacraments with people who are not members of the church)
Context: Share the invitation, ministries, and sacraments through which people can encounter the Living Christ.
Within the sacraments is great capacity for joy and healing. They should not be held in reserve for rare occasions among just a few. This is not to say that we should treat the sacraments casually or as mere routine. The sacraments should be prayed for, prepared for, and revered as a precious gift. At the same time, we should share them [sacraments] generously. For example, anointing with oil and the laying on of hands for healing can be a powerful ministry of the church that we should not be shy about sharing with others. The blessing of children is a beautiful sacrament that can bring peace and healing to families. It is a sacrament intended for all families who wish for their little ones to receive blessing, not just for families who are members of the church.
Of course, the counsel to share the sacraments generously comes within the context of scripture that reminds us about the importance of community. Sharing sacraments is most powerful when participants have opportunity to share in the enveloping love of the church that reaches out to them before, during, and after the experience of sacrament.
