Michael Barber on Catholicism 101

I’m teaching a course on “Church, Ministry, and Sacraments”. Over the course of the semester I’m bringing in various guests including an Orthodox Priest, Anglican Minister, Presbyterian, Baptist, Methodist, and Pentecostal to explain what their tradition believes about church structure, scripture, sacraments, and other churches. I was fortunate enough to get Michael Barber (from The Sacred Page) to make a 40 minute video about Catholicism which I showed to my students. My aim was to get them to hear about Catholicism from an actual Catholic rather than relying on my view of it. Any way, for those interested, here is the you.tube clip by Michael Barber (don’t everyone go converting at once now!). YouTube Preview Image

    I suspect that if you want your students to appreciate the diversity of Anglicanism, you will need visitors who would describe themselves as both Anglican priest and Anglican minister. Some (especially in Sydney) who identify as the latter would hate the thought of being identified as the former, whatever the formularies and BCP say. (And vice versa.)
