Community with a capital “C”
The church is built on community. Together, the People of God welcome new members in Baptism, come together to be fed in the Eucharist, and witness faith proclaimed at Confirmation. Such community nurtures, supports, and affirms the universality and unity of church. When gathering around the table to celebrate, give thanks, and worship, it is helpful from time to time to look and see those around us. Who isn’t present? Who isn’t being served at the table? Who have I shut out? Our call is to spread the Good News . . . and sometimes the greatest news is that all are welcome.
Today’s readings: Acts 6:1-7; John 6:16-21 (272). “It is I. Do not be afraid.”
