Course Objectives

  • It has been my experience (within Protestantism) that for many the Eucharist is a meaningless ritual. It is often done in a perfunctory way out of sheer obedience, if at all. Teaching, if there is any, can be pretty stale. Rehashing familiar views of the relevant Scriptures and debating 16th century metaphysical arguments is normal fare.  Over the years when I pastored traditionally, we tried different things to bring more a meaningful experience to folks. There were occasionally moments of wonder, but generally it was a wholly dissatisfying experience.  What has it been like for you?  What if there is more to it than many of us have been taught in our traditions? This seminar is designed to provoke primarily those from Protestant backgrounds to reconsider some things regarding the Eucharist, communion, or the so-called “Lord’s Supper.” The sessions include:

    Session One: Jesus the Authentic Human
    Session Two: The Logos
    Session Three: In Adam, In Christ - Part One
    Session Four: In Adam, In Christ - Part Two
    Session Five: Our Union
