Community as God Gives - Communion of Saints - Maundy Thursday

Our Savior Lutheran Church and Christian Academy
Maundy Thursday Services:  2:30 & 7
The children of God come to the altar to receive the inheritance that has been bequeathed to them in the last will and testament of the eternal Son of God. No more enriching experience can be had than to receive with the mouth the most precious gifts of Christ's body and blood.  
Christ Himself has invited us children so generously: 
"At that time Jesus declared, 'I thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that you have hidden these things from the wise and understanding and revealed them to little children; yes, Father, for such was your gracious will. All things have been handed over to me by my Father, and no one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and anyone to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.  Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light'" (Mt 11:25-30). 
We are His children by an adoption of grace and as such He has asked us to come to Him and find rest for our souls. That is what is happening in the great communion. Here we are united with Him, His body and blood, and one another. 
That's a lot of communion!
