Mealtimes are sacred and holy times, but we’ve lost the sense of what it means to be connected around the table. W hurry through meals, and many times we eat alone without taking time to enjoy the food or talk to one another. Family dinners are only for special occasions – or maybe a thing of the past altogether. In the church, Holy Communion is our family dinner and a time to remember how Jesus offers us grace and new life. We’re invited to experience God’s grace around the table and feel the presence of Christ as our host.
