Invitation to the Table: World Communion Sunday

Here’s an invitation to communion on World Communion Sunday.  It comes from the Presbyterian Church USA.

Invitation to the Table
World Communion Sunday

Friends, this is the joyful feast of unity.
Christ has gathered his people around the earth
to commune at this table.

Across political lines and economic lines,
in places of powerfully protected affluence,
and among the poorest of the poor,
we share a meal,
remembering and celebrating the One who proved shalom possible.

And so, come:
you from the East and you from the West,
from the North and from the South.

Come with your doubts,
come with your hopes,
come with your inadequacies
and with your strengths.
for this is a table where all are invited
and all are welcome.
