1 Cor 10:14-17, 11:27-32
Thinking tonight about what it means to “discern the body” during Eucharist. For sure we need to remember we are not alone and pay attention to the church– the Body of Christ. And Paul is all over the Corinthians for not paying attention to the poor at the table.
But there’s something else happening here, too:
We must discern the Body of Jesus.
Obedient even unto death….
….on a Cross.
Simply put, our position in the church is not a power trip… it’s a death, and the death is ours.
So that we might be raised.
When I survey the wondrous cross
On which the Prince of Glory died,
My richest gain I count as loss,
And pour contempt on all my pride.
Blessings on Maundy Thursday,
