How do we experience life together?
In Communion this Sunday
Let’s face it: we are living in ways that we have never before experienced. Some of us are feeling too connected; others of us are feeling cut off. With so much change, even in the church, it’s hard to talk about our life together. What does that even mean? Right now, our life together means ‘seeing’ each other virtually and ‘being together’ over Zoom. Life together right now means sharing our joys and concerns in a weekly email, not in person. Our life together for now means we worship apart in body, but together in spirit. Imperfect for sure, but most certainly a blessing.
In Acts 2:42, a verse from the text for Sunday, Luke offers up four ways we experience life together: learning, connecting, praying, and eating with one another. If you are looking for ways to connect and experience life together with others, I invite you to check out our faith formation classes for adults and kids, write a note or call a friend or neighbor, join the Prayer Partners ministry, and come to worship where, this week, we will celebrate the Lord’s Supper together, but in our homes. So set a place at your table with a piece of bread and a cup of juice. You'll want to be ready.
We are called to life together with each other and with God. And it is a gift.
Thanks be to God!
