This Holy Mystery: Revealing Table Secrets part 1: Setting the Table

06.30.23 | by Rev Danita Anderson

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!  Yes, this is the beginning of a new conference/appointment year!!  Our first Sunday together as pastor and congregation for the 10th time!  It is a challenging time because of the changes we have experienced lately, but a time to see how resilient we can be.


And what better way to reflect, remember and be grateful than at the Lord's Table?  This is the one true place where we can gather and bring our whole selves -- the joys and the challenges; the victories and the defeats; the highs and the lows of life.  It is a place where we can remember the love and grace showered on us at moments of utter despair and loneliness as well as feel the cradling and calm when chaos seems to reign Supreme.  This Table is an essential part of who we are, whose we are, and what we believe.


This is one of the myriad of reasons that we will focus our attention this month on the topic "THIS HOLY MYSTERY:  REVEALING TABLE SECRETS".  What is it about the Lord's Supper/Holy Communion that makes it so important in our lives and on this journey of faith?  What are the parts of the Communion liturgy that makes it different than just a mid morning snack?


This week we will talk about "Setting the Table".  What brings us to the table and who can be there are some of the highlights of our conversation.  We will hear it in the liturgy and in some of our favorite/familiar music.


If you have been a little reluctant or hesitant to be here, this is an excellent opportunity to reconnect and join us in person.  We would love to see you.  If they is not possible, please don't miss the chance to join us on YouTube.  Sunday morning at 10:00 a.m. we will be looking forward to seeing you or hearing your responses from watching us on YouTube.  Join us!
