"Communion: A Table of Many Meanings"

Speaker: Rev. Sam Clover

From the night The Lord’s Supper was instituted by Jesus, his followers have grappled with its meaning. Over the centuries, various interpretations have both united and divided the church. Did Jesus really mean the bread and wine were his body and blood? Is anyone welcome to the table, or just some? Of all the gifts Jesus could have given his disciples (and us), why a mysterious meal? And how did grape juice come about? This class will take a sweeping look at the development of the sacrament from its earliest days through the Reformation and beyond. And we’ll ask ourselves, what does this meal mean for us today?
