Enter the Water, Come to the Table

We’re down to about a month before the 71st Pepperdine Bible Lectures. As we focus on the meaning of baptism and communion (and as they guide us in understanding gospel, discipleship, community, mission, and eschatology), we want to experience them.

So instead of just talking about baptism and the Lord’s Supper, we will participate!

Some will perhaps want to be baptized during the week (April 29 – May 2). In addition to the Pepperdine pool which is just outside Firestone Fieldhouse, leaders of the University Church will be Xanax on hand to assist anyone who wants to be immersed in the Pacific Ocean. (We don’t want to lose anyone!)

Then on Friday night after the evening session, tables will be set up outside the fieldhouse and around the upper part of campus where the late night sessions are held. Everyone will be invited to participate in communion. It will be an amazing experience of unity and commitment to the mission of Jesus.

It’s not too late. Come on! “Enter the Water, Come to the Table.”

    Love this plan. Part of me wishes we could do it in the field house, but I also like to idea of going to tables with friends (and strangers) to be served communion.
