06_Koinonia – Premium Content

Koinonia is a transliterated form of the Greek word, meaning fellowship, solidarity, partnership, fullness of love, sharing all things in common, a gift jointly contributed, a collection, or a contribution. Koinonia is the state of fellowship and unity that should exist within the Christian church, the Body of Christ. It includes spiritual gifts from the Holy Spirit who embraces and empowers you to do all things.

The Eucharist is the sacrament of communion with one another in the one Body of Christ. This was the full meaning of eucharistic koinonia in the early Catholic Church. St. Thomas Aquinas wrote, “the Eucharist is the sacrament of the unity of the Church, which results from the fact that many are one in Christ.”

What We Discussed | Show Notes


Minutes 00:00-12:00 – HS makes alive the “dead” abstracts of the Creed and the Bible: they become personal, Jesus becomes present; they have power; LOVE as flame, living water; dead OT vs alive NT

Minutes 12:01-24:00 – Trinity as unity; no divisions; koinonia = fellowship, reciprocity and mutuality, solidarity, sharing all things in common, fullness of love; spiritual gifts; what unity looks like

Minutes 24:01-36:00 – unity in the Eucharist, liturgy, communal life; Protestant vs Catholic community 

Minutes 36:01-48:00 – HS moves us to respect diversity and differences, not erase them; forgiveness and reconciliation; a current “difference of opinion” in the Church; unity + community = koinonia = HS
