The Cross-Shaped Supper

The Cross-Shaped Supper

SACRAMENTS:
The Cross-Shaped Supper

Pastor David Cassidy
1 Corinthians 11


Heaven is the fullness of life found in the community of the Trinity. This community of persons is imaged in each of us, not only because we are not mere monochromatic individuals, but full-color people made for and thriving in community.

At this table that community is created and sustained. It is a community of fallen yet forgiven people, who – in this moment at least – prophesize the age to come. The Supper to come on the Day of the Lord is seen in the Supper we celebrate on the Lord’s day. This is not a merely personal meal, but a shared meal – the Trinity sharing life with us, and each of us extending to one another the grace that God gave to us all.
