communion + community


it is not easy words we say, nor is it the gifts we give that make us friends. friendship invites us to share not only bread broken, but our brokenness. friendship invites us to share not only wine poured into glasses, but our lives poured out.... we remember Jesus best when we are faithful to our lives and when we share in faithful friendship. this is our memorial to him, the memorial to which He calls us in each eucharist.
