JESUS? Today's WORSHIP QUOTE is his prayer about Holy Communion.
Jesus, we're here again. What are we doing here?
I mean, how is communion with you possible? You're holy, and we're
very human. Yet I remember that you also became human.
I wonder how we can honestly be nourished and cleansed by your body
and blood. Yet I realize communion is an outward and visible sign of inward
and spiritual grace. I accept this mystery.
We are grateful for this intimacy with you, Jesus. We thank you for
letting us share this corporate action as we offer to God all of creation
including our own lives. Give us faith to understand what it means to be

[". . . for whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the
Lord's death until he comes." Lord, help us to remember and proclaim the
significance of your cross, and help us to be richly nourished by the regular
corporate observance of your table. AMEN.]
