207 – The Table/The Lord’s Supper – Intention on the Spiritual Journey

Let me encourage you to read Rachel Held Evans blog post “The Table.”

And for starters today, let me give you a small head start,

“Participation in the Lord’s Supper is an inherently moral act. In thefirst century church, and in our own time, people who would never have associated with each other in the larger society sit as equals around the Table of the Lord…The Eucharist, therefore, is not simply a symbolic expansion of the moral circle. The Lord’s Supper becomes a profoundly subversive political event in the lives of the participants. The sacrament brings real people–divided in the larger world–into a sweaty, intimate, flesh-and-blood embrace where ‘there shall be no difference between them and the rest.'”

Can any of that be true?

I recall Apostle Paul saying something about,

“There is no longer Jew or Greek, there is no longer slave or free, there is no longer male and female; for all of you are one in Christ Jesus.” (Galatians 3:28)

What for you speaks of and shows you this solidarity, this equality, this oneness in God’s family?
