So this isn’t my normal “Table Talk” post, but since the subject was on the Lord’s Supper, I decided to classify it as such. Jeremy and I were talking about the Lord’s Supper this morning. For a while now, we have talked about how we don’t think we have it right. That the early Christians… Continue reading Do This to Remember
Sunday’s communion thought was:Matthew 5:23-24 “If you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother or sister has something against you, leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to them; then come and offer your gift.”How might this passage relate to communion? Everyone’s… Continue reading Go and be Reconciled
Yesterdays verse and communion thought question was:1 Corinthians 2:2 “For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified.”How does this attitude promote unity, and how might it relate to communion? The sermon series we started yesterday is all about 1 Corinthians, titled “Paul’s Ideal Church.” Right from… Continue reading Jesus, Just Jesus, and Nothing but Jesus
Yesterday’s communion thought was:1 Corinthians 11:26 – “For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death [and Resurrection] until He comes.”How does communion help you think about the Creation and Kingdom to come?

I’m forgoing my normal “Table Talk” post this morning, but staying in the same realm. We had The Gathering last night. It’s an informal worship setting we have every 1st and 3rd Sunday evenings, with the tagline, “Where fellowship breaks out in worship.” It’s geared more toward just sharing with each other, and being together… Continue reading Bread from Heaven
Acts 15:9, “He did not discriminate between us and them, for He purified their hearts by faith.”How do the themes of the nondiscriminatory gospel and faith relate to communion? First of all, let’s look at the context of Acts 15 to determine who “us” and “them” are. The verses above v. 9 are addressing the… Continue reading ALL – Through Faith, By Grace
Yesterday’s communion talk prompt said:Ephesians 4; Romans 12God has given us different gifts and talents through the Holy Spirit. How do our different roles in the body relate to communion? So first off, what does Ephesians 4 say? It starts out by Paul telling the Ephesians he wants them to “lead a life worthy of… Continue reading One Body
The slide for this week’s communion talk was: Matt 12:7; Hosea 6:6“I desire mercy, not sacrifice.”How can these verses relate to communion? Our prompt usually reflects the day’s sermon in some way, and this one was no different, as the sermon topic was “Transformational Worship”. Also, as the Lord usually throws all things at me… Continue reading Mercy, Not Sacrifice
This week’s communion discussion prompt was from Colossians 3:12, “Therefore, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience.” Then, the question, “How does communion call us to clothe ourselves with compassion?” First off, what is compassion? Merriam-Webster’s definition is “sympathetic consciousness of others’ distress together with a desire to… Continue reading Clothe Yourselves with Compassion
We rang in the new year with a question about new life. January 1st’s communion thought question was “In light of the New Year, how has God made us new?” with a scripture reference of 2 Corinthians 5:17.

Thoughts from yesterday’s communion discussion prompt.
This week’s “thought question” presented to our congregation as we took communion together was: How might not “taking” or “using” the Lord’s name in vain relate to communion? For a little backstory: We have been working through the 10 commandments in our Sunday morning service. We are currently on the third one, to not take… Continue reading Remember Who You Are
One of the things we do during our Sunday service is before the Lord’s supper, there is a slide presented with a scripture and a question for thought. Today’s scripture was Hebrews 1:3 & 8.
