you prepare for this morning’s service to begin, you are invited to reflect on the following…
“Sacraments are visible expressions of the gospel and are given
as means of entering and sustaining the Christian life.
By baptism we are initiated into the Christian community
and begin our Christian pilgrimage.
Through the Lord’s Supper we receive food for our journey
and are strengthened in faith.”
~ A Catechism for Today, Question 79

Why is regularly sharing meals so important for community life?
In what ways might sharing meals be an act of
resistance against the forces that dominate
people’s lives today?
