Study

One the main goals of our grant year is to incorporate a broader reflection in practice of the many biblical images associated with eating with God.

We hope to reflect all of these in some way in our Lord’s Supper liturgy:

  • The Lord’s Supper as an experience of spiritual communion with the Triune God.
  • The Lord’s Supper as an act of covenant renewal with the whole covenant family.
  • The Lord’s Supper as an experience of nourishing and renewing grace.
  • The Lord’s Supper as a foretaste of heavenly hope and joy.
  • The Lord’s Supper as an ethical witness to the world through a renewed ethical commitment to the Lordship of Jesus Christ.
  • The Lord’s Supper as a visible, concrete display of the unity and koinonia of the Body of Christ.
