The practice of observing weekly communion is not unusual in many church traditions. At the Dwelling Place, every aspect of every meeting leads to the time when we gather around the table not only to remember what Christ has done but also to celebrate the reality of his presence with us at that moment and every day. Eucharist is a time of thanksgiving for the fact that the death, resurrection, and ascension of Jesus Christ have brought about a new creation. The old order of things has passed away and everything is new. Every week, as we feed on Christ in our hearts by faith, we are reminded that there is room enough at the table for everyone, and that, in Christ, God has provided enough—grace, mercy, forgiveness, and daily provision—for everyone.
