Communion as surrender: a column in The Mennonite

July 25th, 2008 by isaac · No Comments

I wrote a little piece on my friends for the Mennonite. I called it “Re-membering Communion.” But the editors like to change things around. Here it is: Are memories our communion?

Here’s a piece of it if you want to get a sense of it:

In worship we open our arms to receive the intimacy of God’s communion found when eyes meet—or when we shake hands, or share meals, or speak prayers, or exchange words. The eternal love of the Holy Spirit breathes through these gestures, knitting us together into the body of Christ.
