In our gospel story for today, Jesus talks about very uncertain times. Wars, earthquakes, famines, and even the temple, the center of their faith would fall.
In uncertain times, we look for the things that are stable, the things that will last. We find one of the most sure things right here at the Table.
It's here that we see how much God loves us. So much, in fact, that Jesus would endure death at our hands to show us that nothing we do could separate us from God's love.
Let us pray.
God whose love reaches out to us wherever we are and whatever we've done, we thank you for Jesus, who shows us your love in everything he did and teaches us how to love each other. We thank you for these symbols of bread and cup that remind us of your love.that knows no bounds. As we take the bread and cup, fill us with your Spirit of love that we can share your love in what we say and what we do.
In the name of Jesus, our Christ, Amen.
