Mar 2, 2020: The Climax of Worship

Robert E. Webber

The climax of worship is the Eucharist, for the symbols of bread and wine are the material objects that in a mysterious manner are connected with the broken body and shed blood of Jesus Christ, through whom [one] worships the Father. For this reason, the early church had a high view of the symbols of bread and wine and their place in Christian worship.
