Advent – The New Humanity
Holy Communion is about the new humanity. A community of faith — Church on the Hill — is the new humanity on display for all of the world to see so that they can experience and learn about God’s hope, peace, love and joy.
In this way, Holy Communion is people. Church on the Hill is people; people who have committed themselves to living a certain way in the world. Thus, to be broken and poured out for the sake of others so that they can experience God’s healing and restoration. Holy Communion, then, is ultimately about what we do out there, in the flow of everyday life.
