Isaiah 49:1-7; John 1:29-42
“We are coming together here to this Table more often because we need to be here together more often.
We need to practice Eucharist enough times that it starts to sink in—we are being called to be the Body of Christ in the world and we are called to be grateful for the liberating truth of that purpose that we have.
We are the Body of Christ, and Christ didn’t coddle the powerful. Christ didn’t reject or ignore the oppressed. And Christ didn’t stop following God’s lead when it got hard, or when he got tired, or even when his life was at stake.”
