How do the practices and rituals of the church translate to our lives? For many people, the rituals of the church can seem empty or even mindless. If we don’t understand our own practices, then how can we expect them to be transformative? The Eucharist (Communion/The Lord’s Supper) is one of the oldest practices of the Christian Community. Many of us experience this practice on a weekly or monthly basis, but what does it add? Gathering around Christ’s Table is a template for how we are to live in community. When we allow our practices to impact the entirety of our life, we begin to see that Eucharist is a practice that transforms our lives. We begin to see that every table is an altar.
Join us in worship throughout the Lenten season as we consider The Table.
