1 Corinthians 11:23-32

Maundy Thursday - Year B

1 Corinthians 11:23-32

Paul passed on what he received. The same is incumbent upon each of us. As generation is added to generation and experience to experience, what have you received? What have you passed on?

Are you proclaiming the building of community through common meals and common good? Are you threatening judgment on any who do so through an “unworthy” manner (meaning not approved by the received knowledge of those in power)?

Yes, examine yourself. Are you still connecting creedal purity with physical health? Are you still using portions of the scripture to shun baptized and communing members for whatever reason?

A common meal is not a formal ritual, it is a multi-valent experience of common life with all the messiness such brings. Feast well. Gather strength to helpfully deal with weakness, including your own.
