Communion and Context: Eucharistic Liturgies for Living in a Broken World

Please register for the event below!

The Eucharist, Communion, or Lord’s Supper is a fundamental Christian practice that undergirds Christian identity and nourishes faithful living. This workshop will offer participants an opportunity to intentionally reflect upon their congregation’s practice of the Eucharist, mindful of the social, political, and economic issues present in their community and the city of Chicago. The workshop will begin on Friday evening with an address from Rev. Dr. Cláudio Carvalhaes re-imagining the ways Christ’s presence may be revealed in our fellowship at the Lord’s Table.

On Saturday morning, workshop participants will explore the various liturgical elements of the Lord’s Supper. While reflecting on their own practice and liturgical resources participants will be encouraged to explore the possibility of using new resources or creating new liturgies with their congregations that reflect the lived realities in their communities. A panel discussion will follow that explores the intersections between the Eucharist and the issues of white supremacy, material poverty, deportation, and incarceration. Participants will be encouraged to write out a plan of action to bring conversations regarding the Eucharist, issues of injustice, and liturgical practices back to their congregations and communities.

The workshop will conclude with a worship service and celebration of the Lord’s Supper.
