I received a tradition from the Lord, which I also handed on to you: on the night on which he was betrayed, the Lord Jesus took bread. After giving thanks, he broke it and said, “This is my body, which is for you; do this to remember me.” He did the same thing with the cup, after they had eaten, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Every time you drink it, do this to remember me.”
1 Corinthians 11:23-25
On this World Communion Sunday, we gather in spirit with those around the world as we gather in body at this table. We come from many places, differing in age, differing in race, differing in orientation, politics and even faith. As we come together around the table, we discover that our differences are not something we tolerate but that our differences are indeed a blessing. The more difference we bring, the more we fully we experience the presence of the sacred in our midst.
God of Grace, give us the vision of a united humanity and the courage to work to make it so. #ACoBAmen
