Our January Session Worship Seminar, Worship and Sacramental Spirituality, will be taught by Dr. Gordon T. Smith, January 7-8, 2013.
Dr. Smith was recently appointed President and Professor of Systematic and Spiritual Theology at Ambrose University College and Seminary in Calgary, Alberta Canada. He is the former Academic Vice President, Dean, and Associate Professor of Spiritual Theology at Regent College in Vancouver, British Columbia. Since 2003, Dr. Smith served as the President of reSource Leadership International, an agency that seeks to foster excellence in theological training in the developing world. His books include A Holy Meal: The Lord’s Supper in the Life of the Church, The Voice of Jesus: Discernment, Prayer and the Witness of the Spirit, and Beginning Well: Christian Conversion and Authentic Transformation.
Here is an overview of the January Seminar topic: This seminar examines the vital place of the Lord’s Supper in Christian worship and how this holy meal informs, shapes and animates Christian spirituality. While primary attention will be given to the Lord’s Supper, we will also be asking what it means to worship as the baptized (or, as those who might be on the road to baptism). Also, from diverse perspectives we will consider how the celebration of the sacraments fosters a truly Trinitarian spirituality.
Additional seminar details and registration information will be posted soon.
