In the Father's house, there are many mansions and Jesus has gone to prepare a place for us. But, although there are many mansions, there is only one Table. In God's Realm, we will gather together with all people in all times in all places at the One Table. Won't that be incredible; the vast array of human diversity, all together, sharing the meal and remembering our savior? Imagine how that will be. We can get a start on that experience right here and now, at this Table. As you look around or imagine all the people gathering for communion this Sunday, realize that there are at least a few faces in that crowd that would probably surprise you. Don't let that keep you away. Remember that our Lord associated with all types of sinners, even you. Let us pray.
God of us all, We thank you that we are all one in Christ, especially when we remember Jesus' sacrifice to make the way to come into your presence as one people. We thank you for these symbols of his sacrifice that remind us of our host, Jesus, who gathers us all together when he calls us to his Table. AMEN.
