This past Sunday Pastor Jonathan invited us to prepare for communion by setting aside something to eat and drink for this coming Sunday, like bread and juice. While the concept of taking communion together at church is familiar, the idea of taking it from our homes connected by an online worship service is foreign. We do not want anyone to participate if they feel uncomfortable with the concept, but we also thought it might help to share an article that explains why we feel comfortable taking it this way. One of the key points of the article is that this online format is but a shadow of the real thing. We hope that this coming Sunday’s communion will be a special moment of reflection, remembrance, and being united in Christ, but that it will also help us look forward to the time when we can come back together and take communion as a church body.
