An Embodied Faith: The Body of Christ

The body is one of the central images in Christianity. Jesus Christ is the embodiment–the incarnation–of God. Paul imagines the church as the Body of Christ. Our tradition clearly loves bodies–and yet somehow Christianity became known as a religion that feared and discounted the body. We will explore the role of bodies in the Christian life–the individual body, the relational body, the social and global body, and the mystical body in this four week worship series. Rev. Lewicki, preaching.

Today, we look at our bodies in relationship with other bodies. For a generation, our culture has insisted that we are not neighbors, or friends, or citizens, but self-serving consumers. During the pandemic, this way of understanding our relationships has been deadly. We visit Paul’s 1st letter to the Corinthians, and its image of the body and explore what it means think of ourselves not as autonomous individuals, but as members of one body.
