Come to the Table (April 13th, 2017)

On Jesus’ last night with his disciples before the crucifixion, he gave them the sign of foot washing as a symbol of how they are to love one another. (You can find this story in John 13:1-17; 31-35.) He also instituted the sacrament of Holy Communion, as Paul tells in 1 Corinthians 11:23-26. At this meal, we are transformed. Indeed, at this table, the world finds new life. Come to the table.
