O 103 001 God in the Midst of Us: Thinking about Sacraments

Christian life is about meeting God in our world. Sacramental theology discusses the ways that this happens. This course talks about some of the big themes of Christian life — Creation, Incarnation, and the Reign (or Kingdom) of God — and how we encounter them in everyday life. How does God work in the world? What is grace and how do we find it? At the centre of it all, for us as Christians, is the meeting with God in those ritual actions that the church officially designates as “sacraments”, so these will be addressed — with special consideration of baptism and Eucharist.
