Christ as the Bread of Life with Reverend Marie-Elsa Roche Bragg
‘This is my body, given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.’
Receiving bread and wine in the Eucharist is a ritual to commune with Christ that has been used for over two thousand years. During that time, there have been fascinating discussions about what actually happens during those sacred moments. In this talk we will look at ideas from early Christianity, the Reformation and modern Theology to explore what they say about our relationship with Christ, God and creation as well as what role ritual can have in our lives.
