Dear Trinity family and friends,

For us at Trinity, Holy Communion is a precious moment. For many, it remains the high point of the cross in worship. We are one of the few Protestant churches that serve communion every week. I know our sacramental friends call it the Eucharist which comes from a Greek work that means “thanksgiving,” thus, the Great Thanksgiving. It is a vertical relationship with us and the Lord. A horizontal connection with brothers and sisters in Jesus. Place both vertical and horizontal together and you have the cross. Our praise to God for His sacrifice upon the cross.

In our church family, the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), we call the moment–Holy Communion–communing with one another and with the Lord. On many occasions I have shared with folks at Trinity that I only have one sermon, and it is about a cross (1 Cor. 1:18). Communion is about the cross of Jesus, his suffering and resurrection!

I believe the Holy Communion has through faith, great power for our soul and body. It is indicated in 1 Corinthians 11 that some of the Corinthians were taking the cup and the bread unworthily. They were just eating, drinking and missing what it was all about. Their sicknesses were not being healed. Some died before their time. They were not grasping the meaning of His Body and their relationship with one another. There was division in the church. Fussing and quarreling among the church members. It was as if they were cut off from the forgiveness and healing the Lord could give in Holy Communion.

So we receive Holy Communion, believing in the Lord’s presence to heal and forgive. We love to take the Holy Communion. We love to take it often for many reasons, not the least of which it is a sacrament, a point of contact, to release our faith to God and love the brethren–to heal and forgive. Communion is the Lord’s Table–He set the table. We do not need a list of items to check off to receive His grace. He welcomes all who desire to come to know Him deeply and share in His life.

That’s what I believe the Holy Communion means to us at Trinity. We can experience healing and forgiveness every time we share. It is the cross and the Blood of Jesus cleansing us from all sin

(1 John 1:9). That is the meaning and reality of the words,

“This is my Body and Blood I give to you”
​In Christ alone!

Here’s what’s happening this week at Trinity…

1. Healing Service, Sunday, 7pm, Trinity’s Sanctuary 
2. Trinity Leadership Council Meeting, Social Room 8:30am
3. Family Fun Night, next Wednesday, November 14th
4. This week in worship

1. Healing Service, Sunday, 7pm, Trinity’s Sanctuary

3. Family Fun Night, November 14
Family Fun Night is November 14th from 6-8pm. The theme is Happy Harvest. See Missi Anderson for information.

4. This week in worship
We will continue our sermon series on “Healing” with a message on Holy Communion. The Holy Communion has through faith not only great power to deal with your soul but also with your body. In 1 Corinthians 11, the church was fighting and bickering among themselves. Yet Paul, I believe, was telling the brothers and sisters to eat the bread and drink of the cup “with love, faith and expectation for the church family and others who surround you!” (my commentary). This message is in preparation for our time for healing on Sunday night.

Read John 6:47-69 to prepare for the message on Sunday.

This is a great time of year! The trees are magnificent right now and they move me to praise the God who created them to display such beauty, reflecting God’s glory. I’m reminded of a passage in Isaiah that describes the trees themselves as praising God (they “clap their hands” in praise of God, Isaiah notes). Enjoy them while you can!
