Jesus Christ was one with the Father and he delighted in the glory given to him by the Father. However, he was not tempted to keep this glory just for himself. Instead it was his desire that all who believed in him and all those who would come to believe in him through the testimony of his followers should also enjoy the benefits of his glorification. Together in glory we become one with each other, with Jesus and with God the Father through the Holy Spirit. In the sacrament of holy communion we celebrate this togetherness, enjoying its reality now and looking forward to its completion when Jesus, the bright morning star rises once more to bring eternal life to the world.
At Saint Laika's everyone is welcome to take communion and be in communion, with each other and with God. There are no exceptions. So, come, join us.
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.
