Jesus invites us into communion with him. ‘Communion’ is a close relationship with someone. That might also be expressed in the sacrament of ‘Communion’ that is sharing bread and wine as Jesus did at the Last Supper. There are different traditions and liturgies for sharing communion but what matters most is being in communion with Jesus. 

As Tabitha and her family worshipped the Lord at Rievaulx Abbey they were drawn into communion with Jesus and shared what they had – the water of life (in a dinosaur drinking bottle!) for the ‘cup’, and a rice cake for the bread.

Jesus has a wonderful way of turning what we have into what He has for us. Remember the loaves and fishes? A little was multiplied to feed the many. When you practice the discipline of sharing Communion/The Lord’s Supper/Eucharist, be mindful of the juice and bread you consume and the liturgy and prayers you share (which all matter) but more than that, be ready to receive the gift that Jesus wants to give you in that moment – himself. 

Jesus took bread.  When he had given thanks, he broke it. He said, “This is my body. It is given for you. Every time you eat it, do it in memory of me.”  In the same way, after supper he took the cup. He said, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Every time you drink it, do it in memory of me.”  You eat the bread and drink the cup. When you do this, you are announcing the Lord’s death until he comes again.1 Cor 11: 24-26 NIRV
