Bread & Wine 2011 - Juice, Not Wine

2011.09.18 - Kevin Makins - Bread & Wine 2011: Juice, Not Wine

Luke 11; John 4, 17; 1 Corinthians 12

We kick off year two of Eucharist Church by revisiting our first series: “Bread & Wine.”

As the table grows and grows, we find that we are surrounded by people with radically different backgrounds, stories, and convictions; which will naturally cause tension. 

War and peace, spiritual gifts, style of music, time of gathering, sexual ethics, colour of carpet, end of times, alcohol, dancing, playing cards, and dress code - churches fight and divide over all sorts of issues. 

But what if it was possible to be united at the table? What if there was a better way? What if we were eucharistic? 

What would happen if we took Jesus’ prayer seriously?

Because coming to the table is easy, but staying is hard. 

Music led by Joel Cumby and friends - starts 50 min in.

Special thanks to Scott Aasman for bringing his piece “Altarpiece for a Suburban Church”
