James Farwell is Professor of Theology and Liturgy at Virginia Theological Seminary in Alexandria. His work is in liturgical and sacramental theology, theories of ritual and religion, comparative theology, and the theology of religions. He holds degrees from The General Theological Seminary, and Emory University and is the author of This is the Night and The Liturgy Explained. In “The Eucharist and Human Flourishing,” Dr. Farwell will share his reflections on how liturgy imagines-in-performance the identity of the church; about the church’s liturgical consent to participation in the mission of God; and about the implications of all this for the future of the Eucharistic prayer, the manner in which the Eucharist is celebrated, and the possible revision of the Book of Common Prayer.
