I attended a Methodist seminary who conducted a chapel service each day of classes. In the United Methodist tradition, they partake of communion once a month. On a couple of occasions, Disciples students and/or faculty were invited to conduct the communion service. Many Methodist students commented to me, “If you really want communion done up right, have a Disciple do it.” This was a source of great pride on my part. Disciples really do focus on communion.
As we join this Sunday with all sorts of our brothers and sisters, let us all remember the basic principle of the Disciples of Christ – “All are welcome at the Table” and all means all.
