A Place at the Table
The title of this service may be misleading… don’t we only have communion on the first Sunday of the month? But today we focus on “preparing a table” as part of our call as community. Jesus crossed many divides (“in the presence of my enemies”) by bringing folks to common tables. This love that crosses divides is what is meant by “radical hospitality.” How will we create true “home” in the ways that we help one another, regardless of perceived divisions? How could our table practices in our own homes this week bring us to Holy Communion next week with new perspectives?
