From Sunday:

Today we come to celebrate World Communion Sunday, the day when we focus not on ourselves but on the unity and community that Jesus created with his movement for wholeness. World Communion Sunday is the day when all Christians come together around the Bread and Cup.  A time when we are reminded that the world does not have to be us against them; for when we embrace Jesus around the table, we find a place where our differences can become gifts and talents that God uses to bring wholeness to the world.  

En Agape',
Rev. Michael
