The Way It Works: Christian Worship as Symbolic Discourse

The Rev. Dr. Thomas H. Schattauer, professor of Liturgics and dean of the Chapel at Wartburg Theological Seminary, will address liturgy in three parts:

  • Liturgy as Ritual Symbol—a look at the fundamental nature of liturgy as symbolic discourse.

  • Participation—how people participate in the liturgy as a communal ritual symbol.

  • Body of Witness—how participation in the symbolic discourse of Christian worship is a visible body of witness to the presence and purpose of God in and for the world.

The cost to attend is $65, with .5 CEUs available. To register or for more information, call 563-589-0302, email lifelonglearners@wartburgseminary.edu, or visit www.wartburgseminary.edu.
