This Week's Music Highlight
Daily Scripture Readings
Week of August 3, 2020
Continue to explore the meaning and mystery of communion this week:
Monday: Matthew 26:17-30. Imagine yourself as one of the disciples around the table, experiencing this for the first time. What would you reaction have been to the bread broken and cup offered?
Tuesday: Mark 14:12-25. What do you think the disciples thought Jesus meant when he said, “Take; this is my body” and “This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many”?
Wednesday: Luke 22:14-23. Here, Jesus asks the disciples to take the cup and “divide it among themselves.” How can we “divide Christ among ourselves” rather than keep Christ to ourselves?
Thursday: John 13:1-20. Instead of the institution of communion, John tells us about how Jesus washed the disciples’ feet at the last supper. What common ground do communion and footwashing share in terms of their message and meaning for us today?
Friday: 1 Corinthians 10:16-17. How are we made one, because we partake of one bread?
Saturday: 1 Corinthians 11:17-26. How does the act of taking communion “proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes”? Why would that be important?
