This third text issuing from the Catholic/Reformed dialogue reverts to the first, The Presence of Christ in Church and World (1977). But the focus has undoubtedly changed from Christ to the Kingdom. The present text also sheds light on the Church as the pivotal theme of the second result of this dialogue, Towards a Common Understanding of the Church (1990). By viewing the Church in the wider perspective of the Kingdom the authors of the text declare themselves able to confirm their assessment in the second text that 'sacrament of grace' and 'creation of the Word' are complementary qualifications of the church. However, the question that seems not satisfactorily answered yet is, whether and in what sense all ecclesial activities can be called sacramental.
