A Meal with God
Holy Communion according to the 1928 Book of Common Prayer
Sundays @ 10am Wednesday @ 12noon
At the center of everything we do is communion with God through the sacrifice of jesus christ and eating from it with bread and wine. WHen the prodigal came home to the father he was welcomed with open arms, cleaned from his old life, reestablished as a son, and brought in for a celebratory feast. Everyone of us at st francis at one time or another woke up to the reality that we had erred and strayed away from our father when we found ourselves alone and hurting in the far country. And all of us, like the prodigal, got up and decided to return to our father, amazed to find him waiting for us, ready to robe us in Christ's righteousness, to bring us back into the family, and to commune with us.
This is why we have communion with God at the Lord's Supper every week (twice). We have been welcomed home by our Father, cleansed by the Son, adopted by grace and the power of the Holy Spirit, and brought in to eat and celebrate as one of the family.
