How2charist - a digitally instructed Eucharist
What began as a theology course project about new forms of media and worship has grown into a globally accessible, much needed resource for learning about the Eucharist. Callie Swanlund saw the potential for the broad use of her initial material. A successful crowd funding appeal proved the enthusiasm for the project. Thanks to that generosity and the work of Callie and tech guru Jeremy Tackett, we can access this visually rich and engaging set of videos about an Anglican Eucharist service.
Each video takes us through a section of the service and the excellent support material acknowledges and embraces the diversity within the Anglican communion, while offering a “middle way” example of liturgy. The material references American terminology, but this provides an Australian audience with the opportunity to discuss the nature of a global Anglican community, common links and differences. Seriously, this is what many have been waiting for! Take a look if you have teens and adults wanting to know more about the Communion service we share.
“This is a communal resource: made possible by the financial support and creative talents of many and given as a gift for all. Callie and the Office of Communication at The Episcopal Church can't wait to see the ways in which individuals and churches co-create ways of evangelizing the Gospel and deepening faith through the How2charist!”
