Chuck Knows Church is a weekly online video series interpreting the objects, symbols and terms used in church for anyone who might be unfamiliar with them.
The series featuring Chuck, a witty, fount of knowledge about all things church, is being produced by the General Board of Discipleship (GBOD) office of communications and worship resource team, in collaboration with the United Methodist Publishing House and United Methodist Communications.
The Transfiguration of Jesus is an event reported by the Synoptic Gospels in which Jesus is transfigured upon a mountain. Why is this event lifted up and celebrated? Chuck will tell you on this his SIXTY-SIXTH show!
As recorded in John’s gospel, on his last night before his betrayal and arrest, Jesus washed the feet of his disciples and then gave them a new commandment to love one another as he had loved them. But how did “Foot Washing” ever become part of Christian worship? Find out on Chuck’s SIXTY-FIFTH show!
An Annual Conference is a regional body that governs much of the life of the “Connectional Church.” Sound confusing? We agree. Chuck will try to make sense of “Annual Conferences” when he makes a conference call on this his SIXTY-FOURTH show!
A parable is a succinct, didactic story which illustrates one or more instructive lessons or principles. But what does that mean? And why did Jesus use parables? Chuckle along with Chuck as he talks about “Parables” on this his SIXTY-THIRD show!
