THST 3240 Water, Word, and Wine

4 semester hours

This course will explore how Christian sacraments reveal what Christians believe and how they understand and relate to God by closely examining select ritual practices. We will explore rituals such as Baptism and Eucharist, and attempt to articulate their meaning by defining symbols such as water, food, oil, and the role of the body in worship. We will consider how ritual participation reveals a Christian’s relationship with God and the human community, and how worship shapes daily Christian life and identity.
