Deepen your own and your congregation’s understanding and practice of Holy Communion, or begin a Eucharistic ministry, through this wide-ranging study of "This Holy Mystery," Scripture, church history and United Methodist theology and practice of the sacrament. This course will reference, but go beyond, the official United Methodist documents to include art, music, film and video resources to enrich our understanding and participation in the sacrament. Recent conversation in The United Methodist Church about the communion table in the digital age will be included. Participants will need a Bible and, if possible, a United Methodist Hymnal and Book of Worship; other materials will be downloaded. Class members should be prepared for daily reading, reflection and online discussion. This study is guaranteed to deepen your experience of Holy Communion, providing resources and ideas for all, both laypeople and clergy, who plan and lead worship and provide pastoral care. This course has been approved by Discipleship Ministries as an advanced course with 10 contact hours in Lay Servant Ministries. This course is eligible for 1.0 CEU. Price: $65.
