“Word & Sacrament” ~ Thursdays, 6:30-9:10 p.m., Sept. 10-Nov. 19, 2015, at Greystone in Coraopolis, PA
by Mark A. Garcia, Ph.D.
President & Fellow in Scripture and Theology
Greystone Theological Institute
An in-depth theological study of how Scripture and sacrament shape Christian and church existence from the perspective of confessional Reformed catholicity. Through a consideration of primary texts as well as select contemporary voices in theology and ethics, this course pursues sustained reflection on the nature and telos of Holy Scripture, the relationship of the two testaments in theology and ministry, the role of canonical Scripture in spiritual formation and ethical inquiry, the ontology and eschatology of sacramental communion in relation to the presence and activity of the Word, and disputed facets of baptism and the Supper.
This course complements M.A. and M.Div. programs and will be held at the Th.M./Ph.D. level. “Word & Sacrament” may be taken a la carte and outside of a degree program. As applicable, it fulfills a course requirement in both Greystone Certificates: the Certificate in Theological Studies (CTS, comparable to a Th.M.) and Certificate in Pastoral Studies (CPS, comparable to a S.T.M.).
This residential course is also available for distance students – both full credit and auditors – in online or audio-only form.
Full credit: $850 (accepted for elective credit at Reformed Presbyterian Theological Seminary, Pittsburgh, PA)
