These beliefs aren’t just words; they affect everything about us. If we belong to our Lord Jesus, then we keep nothing hidden from him, or apart from our devotion to him. How we see ourselves, and each other. The way we love, the way we forgive, what we do with our gifts and our power. How we spend our time and how we spend our money. What we value and what we let go. What we long for and what grieves our hearts.
And the reason we celebrate this sacrament over and over again is that it is so, so hard to remember this truth. It’s hard to hold onto this faith. It’s hard to remember even our deepest, most life-giving beliefs. So we come here to practice, again and again.
