Having learned from each other about the variety of ways communion is celebrated around the world, we easily adjusted to observing this important practice from our homes during the novel coronavirus pandemic in 2020.
One Sunday for our virtual service (via Zoom) we each chose elements to represent the body and blood of Christ. In so doing, we demonstrated the diversity of God’s people and the many ways God has been revealed throughout history.
For our virtual Easter Sunday service we invited each household to make Navajo flatbread to celebrate communion (see photo). Following the same simple recipe became a powerful symbol of sharing the common loaf even while we were physically separated.
The many insights and experiences of our Year-at-the-Table focus has deepened our understanding of communion and brought us closer to God and to one another.
