A Blessing for World Communion Sunday


“'Truly I tell you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will never enter it.'And he took them up in his arms, laid his hands on them, and blessed them." ― Mark 10.15-16

And the Table Will Be Wide
A Blessing for World Communion Sunday

And the table will be wide.
And the welcome will be wide.
And the arms will open wide to gather us in.
And our hearts will open wide to receive.

And we will come as children who trust there is enough.
And we will come unhindered and free.
And our aching will be met with bread.
And our sorrow will be met with wine.

And we will open our hands to the feast without shame.
And we will turn toward each other without fear.
And we will give up our appetite for despair.
And we will taste and know of delight.

And we will become bread for a hungering world.
And we will become drink for those who thirst.
And the blessed will become the blessing.
And everywhere will be the feast.

– Jan Richardson

Thank You Lord that the table is wide enough to include me. Amen.
