The Communion Table is Open, by Tom F. Driver

Bread“Faith — meaning “draw near with confidence or trust.” It’s not what you believe in your head. It’s the sense of trust and love in your heart. Today, as we pass the bread and the grape juice, we are going to sing “Ubi charitas.” It’s Latin words mean, “Wherever there is love and charity, there is God.” We will also sing, “Holy, holy, holy.” It is not the bread and wine or juice that are holy. It is the love and charity surrounding them. It is not that God erases our religious and cultural and other differences. It ‘s that God draws us into love across those differences.”

,  Paul J. Tillich Professor of Theology and Culture, Emeritus Union Theological Seminary; Author; Theologian
