Living Life Sacramentally: Faith and the Importance of the Imagination

We hear arguments for and against Christian faith. But arguments at best test our faith. At its real heart is the ability for us to imagine, to see the world as being God’s creation, including seeing a sacrifice at its core. In these five sessions we will look at what role the religious imagination plays in our living faith, especially in living life sacramentally, that is, as a way of partaking in God’s own life by engaging God’s presence in the world. This will also consider how important the arts – poetry, music, painting and sculpture are to religious faith. They are not just window dressing, but expressions of what can be seen in God’s world.
