Living Life Sacramentally:
Faith and the Importance of the Imagination
We often hear arguments for and against Christian faith. But arguments at best test our faith. At the real heart of faith is the ability for us to imagine, to see the world as being God’s creation, including seeing Christ’s sacrifice at its center. Join us as we look at the 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 is more than theology, for we will consider how important the arts are to religious faith. They are not just window dressing, but expressions of God’s making God’s presence dwell in the world.
