The graciousness of God is that God offers salvation to all people regardless of their past deeds and thoughts, regardless of their race, their wealth or their poverty, regardless of their strength, their health, their intelligence, regardless of their standing in the world, regardless of what other people think of them. We cannot earn this grace, we are just not good enough to do that. None of us are. But we can choose to accept it and we can choose to refuse to allow it to influence our lives. By sharing with Jesus Christ and with each other in the sacrament of holy communion we physically enact our commitment to live as creatures of God's grace, as people who walk in the light of the presence of God rather than people who choose the darkness of a life lived in the absence of God.
At Saint Laika’s everyone is invited to receive communion and be in communion. There are no exceptions. If you have been pushed out of a church in the past or if you do not feel part of the institutional churches, for whatever reason, you are especially welcome here, and you will be among people who know exactly how you feel.
If you want to physically partake of communion you will require a small piece of bread and a small amount of drink (preferably made from grapes and containing alcohol). How you view the nature of this part of the service is completely up to you.
