I’ve written in the last couple of days about wanting to create a seminary course around the idea of Common Eating. Post number 1 gives my rationale for thinking this up in the first place. Post number 2 suggests a possible marking scheme. Post number 3, for today, provides the outline. Over the next two weeks I plan to flesh out that outline.
Week 1 – Introduction and Overview
Week 2 – We Are What & How We Eat
Week 3 – Common Eating in the Old Testament
Week 4 – Common Eating in the New Testament
Week 5 – The Eucharistic Meal
Week 6 – Thanksgiving in the Meal
Week 7 – Ferial Eating
Week 8 – Fasting and Feasting (Corporate Focus)
Week 9 – Food & Drink
Week 10 – Food & Hospitality
Week 11 – Taking the Invitation to the Highways and Bi-ways
Week 12 – That Pork was Lovely Mrs. Brown. OH! It was Chicken?
Week 13 – Extending the Table
So there you have them, the 13 topics that I hope this course will cover. They, like the rest of these ideas are provisional, but I think I can make a cogent case for being able to spend a 3 hour class session on each of these topics. Again, depending on class size, the material needing to be covered, we will have to work out how this all fits in a three hour time frame.
Again, I welcome any and most comments. You can comment in the comment section below or send me a tweet @anglibubs.
