Two typical responses: “Wow, that sounds really powerful!”
Or, “Wow! That sounds really controversial!”
When Paul wrote about the Table of the Lord, he said, “For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.”
That word “proclaim,” in the Greek, is katangello.
Katangello means declare, preach, make known, proclaim publicly.
When you eat this bread and drink this cup, you declare, preach, make known, proclaim publicly.
The Table of the Lord is not a quiet, introspective moment, but a loud statement.
Why do we do it only occasionally? Something this powerful … let’s do it often!
Each day’s reading has three parts: a short meditation, one of the scripture passages about communion, in a variety of translations, and a brief prayer of response.
We invite our community to participate in October, specifically, but we take communion year-round, and invite you to do so, too.
Every month, it seems that at least half the readings seem in exact perfect alignment with what we are walking through: a surprise and delight, month after month. A prayer for healing when we need healing, or greatness, or comfort, or blessing.
We invite you to participate in new ways to proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.
Come Savor Communion.
