The Jesus Way, Part 6: The Way of the Table - Heather Zempel

published 11 months ago by National Community Church

The table is one of the most ubiquitous yet overlooked settings in the Scripture. Throughout the Old Testament, the table is where people encountered the power, provision, promise, and presence of God. In the New Testament, the table is where the powerful were confronted, the oppressed were uplifted, the outcasts were invited, the self-righteous were ridiculed, and the seekers were given a glimpse of the kingdom of God. He encouraged his followers to remember him when they came to the table together in a ritual that has been practiced by the church for 2,000 years. Whether we call it Communion, The Lord’s Supper, or the Eucharist, it is the place where we ground ourselves in our common faith and are united in Jesus.
