Call to the Table: World Communion Sunday

Here’s an invitation to the Table written for World Communion Sunday (celebrated by churches around the globe on the first Sunday in October).  It was written by Joanna Harader.

Invitation to the Table

Leader: We gather around the Table in places far and near
Side 1: Eating Sourdough, Rye, Tortillas
Side 2: Crackers, Wafers, and Wonderbread–
All:       The body of Christ.
Leader: Drinking the wine or the juice
Side 1: from handmade chalices and silver goblets,
Side 2: golden spoons and little mini cups–
All:       The blood of Christ.
Leader: The bread and the cup unite us with all who would follow Jesus.
Side 1: This meal reaches back through the centuries.
Side 2: This table reaches around the world.
All:       Let us eat and drink with joy.
