Did you know that when the first followers of Jesus gathered together for worship they did so in private homes, around a dinner table? The first Communions (also called Mass or Eucharist) were basically potluck meals. Early Eastern European Unitarians also shared Communion services as part of a common meal.
For our UUFF Dinner Church we’ll gather around the table, share a pot-luck meal, hear and discuss some of the stories about Jesus. We’ll share bread and a common cup as a symbol of the humanity we all share. There will also be an opportunity to participate in another ritual from the stories of Jesus: washing one another’s feet as a symbol of service.
This service will be co-led by Rev. David and Nathan Kohlmeier. Please email Rev. David if you’d like to bring something for the potluck. Please come early if you can to help with set-up, and stay after for take-down. Creating and cleaning our space together is part of the service.
