2015 World Communion Sunday: It is To Such as These
October 4, 2015
This year’s texts remind us of our common ancestors in faith who were created in the image of God (Genesis 2), crowned with honour and glory (Psalm 8:5), called as brothers and sisters by Jesus (Hebrews 2:11), and exhorted to receive the kingdom of God as little children (Mark 10:15). These are strong texts for helping us overcome barriers and to recognize the unity with which the Holy Spirit has gifted us.
As you plan this service, consider inviting a neighbouring congregation, preferably from another denomination, to join you in planning and celebrating it. If doctrinal matters make this challenging, then celebrate separate communion liturgies but follow with a shared Love Feast, or a Potluck that acknowledges Jesus as the table host and your unity as different subsets of God’s family. Also see this love feast litany that Mennonites and Catholics celebrate annually, and in which they share Jesus’ table hospitality within existing restrictions.
