Eucharist III

(Another episode in a ‘Thinking Out Loud’ series)

They have come from all over the world, to Jerusalem, the City of the Great King. Jerusalem, perhaps the most liminal and Thin Place on planet.

They have come to City of the King. And now, they sup with him at his Banquet. They line up: African, Asian, European, North and South American, Far East Asians, Aussies and Kiwis. Arabs and Jews. Rich and poor. Healthy and disabled. The new People of God.

They hold out their hands and receive the Bread of Heaven, crushed and broken for them.

They drink of the Cup of Salvation, imbibing of the Eternal Joy represented within.

They are One. One Faith, One Lord, One Baptism.

The Eucharistic Community.

‘Though we are many, we are One Body, because we share in One Bread.’
