Throughout history, the celebration of the Lord’s Supper has been understood as a family meal, a time when those connected to Christ revel in their connectedness with one another.
Yet, sadly, the Supper has also been the subject of great division in the church as some have made too much of the bread and cup, and others not enough.
Today we take our whole time together to remind ourselves of Jesus’ intentions in the bread and cup and to rest in the love we share as members of His family. Today the family comes together to enjoy a celebratory meal. We celebrate our Savior’s humility and saving power even as we recognize that, through Him, we are the family of God.
