Communion, and the Spectacular Initiative of New Life

I’d like to challenge you to show up at your local faith community, to take communion (as we will at Wake Forest Presbyterian – you are welcome at our church), and to turn your heart toward the spectacular initiative of New Life that we celebrate, and that we strive to live into with creativity, with faithfulness, and with joy.
