Holy Communion For The Third Sunday After The Epiphany

Jesus-Synagogue-Nazareth

In his first letter to the Corinthians, Saint Paul says, "The cup of blessing that we bless, is it not a sharing in the blood of Christ? The bread that we break, is it not a sharing in the body of Christ? Because there is one bread, we who are many are one body, for we all partake of the one bread."

It is in the sacrament of holy communion that the people of God are brought closest together to each other and to Jesus Christ. The Churches of the world in their desire for power may try to separate Christians, pitting us against each other, claiming authenticity only for themselves and even forbidding their members from sharing communion with believers from different denominations, but ultimately they will fail because we are united by something more powerful than any human contrivance. We are united in one body by the cross. What God has joined together let nobody pull asunder.

At Saint Laika's everyone is welcome to take communion and be in communion, with each other and with God. There are no exceptions.

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.
