World Communion Sunday

The whole world is coming together to symbolically celebrate the bravery of Jesus’ sacrifice.

(Posted October 4, 2019)Reverend Pat Kriss

There's a communion of more than our bodies when bread is broken and wine drunk.- M. F. K. Fisher, 20TH century American Writer

Now here’s a question I’m going to guess that no one has asked you in the last week: What do you think is happening when you take the bread and grape juice on Communion Sunday? How does it affect you?  And how did the whole tradition of what we call The Lord’s Supper get started?

Church Services on Sunday

Service begins at 10 a.m. All are welcome to worship with us. 

On this, our World Communion Sunday, how does it make you feel to know that people around the world are experiencing the same thing, sending up similar prayers for peace and reconciliation? Our congregation increasingly reflects the diversity of what the greater Danbury area has come to represent. In honor of our shared communion and of our rich cultures, this Sunday Sanjay Patel will play his harmonium and bring the spice of Indian music to our service along with our Chancel Choir. Sanjay’s music was so well-received some five years ago when he first shared his musical talents. Come join us to share news of how the whole world is coming together to symbolically celebrate the bravery of Jesus’ sacrifice, and how people are restoring his kind of love and compassion around the world. - Pastor Pat Kriss
