World Communion Sunday is a day for people around the world to gather in spirit as one body at Christ's table. We come from many places, differing in age, race, orientation, politics and even faith, discovering that are differences are not something we tolerate but that our differences are a blessing. At ACoB, we broke many types of bread in communion of the body of Christ. Injera, pita, naan, rice crackers, torilla, corn bread, pumpernickle and wheat symbolized the many different peoples within the family of God: people who long to be united as one humanity.

Blessing Silena, our delegate to the Church of the Brethren Annual Conference

Each year our denomination holds an annual conference to make business and polity decisions with a delegate from each congregation. Each year we send off our delegate with a prayer.

Sometimes things happen in life that are puzzling. We can't figure them out because they are hard to understand, especially if we can only see one part of the puzzle. but if we take time, and don't get too frustrated, and get some help from our friends, we might just solve the puzzle. In a recent Children's Church during the Sunday service, we thanked God for friends who help us when we have a puzzle.

Each year we gather in worship with the congregations that share our building. The service is conducted in our three different languages: Khmer, Spanish and English, and we let the Holy Spirit do the translating. Afterwards, we share in a potluck picnic to get to know each other across cultures.
