This seminar with Dr. Robert Stamps focused on the Lord’s Supper, with the goal of providing an informed and experiential understanding of what can transpire at the Table of the Lord. It does not matter what happens to the bread at the Table if nothing happens to the people who eat it!

Dr. Stamps described his personal journey that led from youthful inquiry as to the meaning of the Lord’s Supper to teaching Sacramental Theology at a seminary. The seminar was rich in theological content, but richer still for the way it showed how Christ sits down with sinners at His Table, refusing to let them leave unchanged.
