“This is the only way God can break into our world.”
For the early Church, Eucharist was understood as agape—an outflowing of divine life—and held the significance of a meal as the expression of shared love, a thanksgiving for the goods of the Earth.
A new God consciousness calls for a rebirth of religion. Christian liturgy has become a routinized, mechanized pious devotion depleting the real value of the sacraments. We partake of the Sacraments not to be saved by consumption, but to be freed by participation. Eucharist is more of a quantum entanglement of our lives and God’s life, a sacred exchange, so that our lives becomes God’s life and God’s life becomes our lives. This is the only way God can break into the world.
The “Internet Religion” we are experiencing during the Covid-19 pandemic may be the first sign of a new religious consciousness and convergence in our age. We can attend different liturgies around the world, explore different religious traditions, hear new prayers and participate in new rituals.
Join us online on May 8th for a Zoom conversation with Ilia, where we will explore awakening to this deep presence of God and help create the world unto the fullness of love.
All registrants will also receive access to a recording of the Zoom conversation after the event.
