At the table, God uses the loaf and the cup as visible signs of God’s pure, unbounded love for us and for all. When we partake of the bread and the chalice, we embrace God’s unconditional love as the basis for our lives as individuals and communities, and we commit ourselves to live in God’s ways of love for all.
Jesus invites us to bring all that we are and all that we have when we become a follower, a disciple of Christ. It is a sojourn that is meant both to form us more into the image of Christ through the disciplines of study, worship, prayer, service, and generosity; as well as to strengthen us in becoming powerful agents for the good that God is doing in our world.
Our faithful financial stewardship is one way we are invited to respond to Christ’s invitation. Our generosity funds the mission and ministry that we are deploying as a sign that God’s Realm is among us. Today we begin an intentional reflection titled From Bread and Cup to Faith and Giving as a preparation for determining our investment in the ministry and mission of Boise First Congregational United Church of Christ. The time of study and reflection will culminate on Commitment Sunday as part of worship on November 13th.
God has done and continues to do remarkable things through us and with us – things that matter in our community! Your prayers and your participation are keys to helping us advance further on the pathway of discipleship. We know that when the early church gathered to break bread and share with one another, they did so with glad and generous hearts and that there was no need among them (Acts 2). We desire such a spirit of true community to be among us, motivated by the grace we receive at the Table.
