In the sacrament of the Eucharist, the communion in which we share, we are brought together, with each other and with Christ. This unity allows us to share each others joys and each others sorrows. It is part of the incarnation, the act of the Word, the son of God, becoming flesh, which allowed the divine Christ to know our human suffering. We cannot know the pains that Christ had to bear on the cross and we would not want to, but we can walk with him throughout this coming week of his passion. As we now partake of the bread and the wine, which is as his body and his blood to us, let us promise in our hearts to accompany him all the way.
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.
