(Tomorrow, Sunday, October 6, is World Communion Sunday, and what follows is an invitation to the Lord’s Table from Presbyterian Church USA liturgical resources.)
Friends, this is the joyful feast of unity.
Christ has gathered his people around the earth
to commune at this table.
Across political lines and economic lines,
in places of powerfully protected affluence,
and among the poorest of the poor,
we share a meal,
remembering and celebrating the One who proved shalom possible.
And so, come:
you from the East and you from the West,
from the North and from the South.
Come with your doubts,
come with your hopes,
come with your inadequacies
and with your strengths.
for this is a table where all are invited
and all are welcome.
