What would you say?

November 7, 2007

If you were visiting a church from out of town and the session required visitors to give evidence of their faith before communing, how would you answer their query?

Why do you want to celebrate the Eucharist (Good Grace or Gift)?

  1. Hannah Says:

    What would I say? “I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth . . .” On a more personal note, I think I would say that I believe Christ’s atoning death has rescued me (and all believers) from the just wrath of God and allowed me, through faith, to become one of God’s children. In partaking of the Eucharist, we recognize again the kinship we have been given, with God and with His people all over the world. Eating and drinking bread and wine becomes a celebration of and an instance of the deep koinonia – communion, community, fellowship – that we enjoy with God and with our brothers and sisters through the blood of Christ.
