God raised Jesus from the dead, in body and in spirit. Christ was so physically real after his resurrection that his disciples could touch him and still feel the wounds of his crucifixion. The incarnation is at the very heart of our faith. The Word became flesh. The divine became earthly. Body and soul are one. Both are pleasing to God. In the sacrament of holy communion we are reminded of this life giving mystery as the bread and wine become for us the body and blood of Jesus Christ. The eucharist is certainly a spiritual experience but it is also a physical reality.
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.
