Common Eating – The Eucharist

Since I last updated this post on the Eucharist, I’ve discovered that Google likes posts that are at least 1,200 words in length. As a result I’m going through a lot of my old posts to see if I can find ways to reach that baseline number. Some of them have been quite easy as…

One of the important parts of Common Eating as a course, is finding ways for the students to work together. The marking system will definitely involve credit for the ability to work together.

I Am The Bread of Life – John 6:22-35

Hello everyone. This week’s sermon on “I am the Bread of Life,” is a little late in getting up. We have had a rather traumatic incident at St. Philip’s.
