Dear <<First Name>>
I hope you have enjoyed our wander through 1 Corinthians – we will go and have a look at 2 Corinthians after Easter. For the next two weeks we will look, between Mondays and Saturdays, at the two Sacraments we celebrate in the United Reformed Church – Baptism and Eucharist. We continue to work through the Sing Psalms! Psalter on Sundays.
The Rev’d Professor David Thompson has written these reflections on Baptism and the Eucharist. David is a retired minster and Professor of Church History at Cambridge – he attends Downing Place URC in the city. He is one of our premier theologians and was a Churches of Christ observer at the talks which formed the union of the Presbyterian Church of England and the Congregational Church of England and Wales in 1972. Later, he helped steer the majority of the Churches of Christ into the URC and has been used by the Disciples of Christ – in America – in their dialogue with the Catholic Church. David is one of our sharpest minds and brings the Churches of Christ commitment to weekly celebrations of Holy Communion (something Calvin himself wanted) and a keen commitment to believer’s baptism to his reflections. We hope you find these reflections useful.
