Spiritual Communion is a very special experience that opens our hearts and minds to the reality of God’s Presence within us and within community. This sacred practice has been a part of the Jesus Christ path of transformation since the very beginning. Spiritual Communion is based in the scripture found in Mark 14 which tells of Jesus’ sacred Passover meal with his disciples. Sharing Communion with our church community is a meaningful way to prepare ourselves for Easter during this Lenten season.
In the Unity tradition Spiritual Communion is celebrated as a meditation. We use the symbols of communion—bread and wine—in their metaphysical, rather than outward physical forms. In so doing, we fill our thought and feeling with the strong realization of the Christ Presence. We experience our Communion meditation in three phases–Release, Acceptance, and Dedication.
Spiritual Communion is an experience in which we participate with our whole being–mind, body, and spirit. It is a time of consciously deepening and accepting our oneness with God, and through that, our oneness with ourselves, with all humanity, and with all Creation. Spiritual Communion is a time of consciously appropriating—that is, accepting into our daily lives, the fullness of spiritual substance and spiritual life that is our true nature. It is a time of affirming in Spirit and in Truth our sacredness as expressions of Life. Join us for this very special celebration this Sunday, March 15, at our 11 AM Service. May it quicken your awareness of “Christ in you, the hope of glory.” Colossians 1:27
In the Love and Light of the Christ,
