“To Touch Our Bread Deeply and Become Reborn: Meditations on Communion,” August 1, 2021

The Touchstones Theme for August is Communion. On Sunday, August 1st, Esther Wallace returns to speak to us. Her sermon is called “To Touch Our Bread Deeply and Become Reborn: Meditations on Communion.”

What do you think of when you encounter the term “Communion?” Perhaps the word Communion invites a sense of deep, mutual knowing, or an association with the sacrament of the Eucharist—or the memory of another ritual or spiritual practice. As members of a multireligious faith tradition, what might it mean for us to practice Communion together? What shapes might practices of Communion take in our lives? Whether you have a regular practice of Communion or have no particular experiences with it at all, you are warmly welcomed to encounter the possibilities of Communion in our time together!

Esther Wallace works and plays in the realms of meaning-making, sacred space, and social justice. Profoundly interested in emergent spiritual communities and the intersections of ministry and disability, Esther is in the final stages of her Master of Divinity degree at Starr King School for the Ministry.

And when music inspires, we thank our music director Tom Devine.
