Postmodern understanding of existence has made the concepts of symbol and sacrament useful to describe how the church understands God’s presence in life. Liturgical theology is not a theory of the congregation’s services, but a comprehensive view of human existence. The course describes growing influence of sacramental reflection on ecumenism, parish life and on the understanding of the role of churches in a multicultural context. Particular emphasis is given to Luther’s radical rethinking of the disruptive role of sacraments in theology and life.

The course includes site visits within the Twin Cities.

This course is cross-listed with the University of Uppsala and the Peter Fjellstedt Foundation.

Pastors from Sweden will be participating.
