A Communion Invitation

I wanted to share with you a communion invitation from our Christmas Eve service. It’s modified from the Wisdom of Solomon and was very meaningful to me.

Receive the food of angels, which comes to you without toil,

this is supplied to you from heaven and is bread ready to eat,

and the fruit of the vine ready to drink.

May this provide every true pleasure and be suited to every taste.

This sustenance manifests God’s sweetness toward you,

His children through Christ our Lord,

and the bread and wine ministers to the desires of those who take it.

Let us pray. Surely, dear Lord, you are food and drink to your people.

We acknowledge your full humanity and divinity as we look toward your Advent. Bless those here assembled as they eat and drink of this holy meal.
