Benediction for Communion Service

Communion is about action ...
"taste and see," the Psalmist tells us.

So, now that we've taken the bread and cup,
what are we going to do?

If we are truly experiencing communion,
we will be driven to offer the bread and cup
- in whatever form it's needed - to others ...
to whomever needs it.

In so doing, our sense of community will widen in ways
that are sometimes scary but also exhilarating.

This is the work that communion brings us to.
