World Communion Sunday--October 1, 2017

The first Sunday of October is a time when Christians in every culture break bread and pour the cup to remember and affirm Christ as the Head of the Church. On that day, they remember that they are part of the whole body of believers. Whether shared in a grand cathedral, a mud hut, outside on a hilltop, in a meetinghouse, or in a storefront, Christians celebrate the communion liturgy in as many ways as there are congregations.

"From the prairies and pampas of the Americas to the dusty deserts of Africa and Asia, from the majestic mountains of Europe to the vast outback of Australia. We give thanks for the multiplicity of humanity with our complexity of color and culture yet called into oneness-of-being through Christ."


 

Three key components of Who We Are (from the United Church of Christ):

No matter who you are or where you are on life's journey, you are welcome here.

Our faith is 2,000 years old. Our thinking is not.

Never place a period where God has placed a comma.

Today I relax and trust the current of the Spirit to take me where it will.

This is the first Sunday of the month so Holy Communion will be served. At the table of Holy Communion, in bread blessed and broken, we recognize Christ and rejoice. All those who share this belief are invited to receive the sacrament.
