Communion Is About Unity and Mutual Love Holy Communion started as a love feast in the early church.  It was a literal reenacting of the last supper Jesus had with his Disciples.  In smaller church settings it worked.  Then, as churches grew things began to happen.  Wealthy people got off work first and ate all the food and hourly wage earners and slaves would come to the love feast late and there would be no food left.  The church gradually developed Holy Communion into a symbolic feast that used the bread and wine in symbolic ways. Today we come to the table together.  We come as those who are bound together by the love Christ has for us and we come together because we long for that love to live in us.  We want to be united in this love.  The invitation in our ritual (p.26) reads this way: “Ye that do truly and earnestly repent of your sins, and are in love and charity with your neighbors, and intend to lead a new life, following the commandments of God, and walking from henceforth in His holy ways: Draw near with faith, and make your humble confession to almighty God.” This invitation calls for us to seek the grace of God, to be reconciled in our relationships and with the good intention of making a new start.  We do so because we do not wish to have grievances and mistrust standing between us.  This sacrament is as much about our relationships with others as it is about our relationship with God.
