The Incarnational Tradition – Spiritual Formation

The Incarnational Tradition – Spiritual Formation | Sunday | January 13 | 10:00 | Great Hall

The Reverend Doyt L. Conn, Jr.

The Incarnational tradition concerns itself with the relationship between Spirit and matter; they are complementary not oppositional. God loves matter. God creates “and it was good!” Liturgy is a way in which we use material symbols and gestures to point to the invisible spiritual dimension of existence. The sacraments of the church are a way in which matter points to the Spirit; they are a way by which the reality of God becomes embedded in our body, our mind, and our spirit.
