Corpus Christi (Body of Christ)

A Message from Our Deacon

If we would, perhaps we could genuinely hear what Jesus is saying about his life and our life together with him (Mark 14:12-16, 22-26). We could hear that the breaking of bread and the drinking of wine convey a mystery so profound that all history hangs on its meaning. We could, maybe for the first time or at least for the first time in a long time, hear deeply that God loves us so much, God gave all of who God is to us in Jesus Christ… nothing held back!

What would worship become for you and me if we tried to understand God’s gift to us? Worship would be transformed by wonder and grace that break through the mundane moments of our weary lives with life-changing power. Turn on your gift of imagination.

Today we honor the body and blood of Christ, remembering he gave himself for us. Come to this table and give yourself to him whom to know is the gift of life eternal.
