Thanksgiving and Eucharist

leave a comment »

This Thanksgiving I have been thinking about Eucharist (which means “thanksgiving”) and how we have changed it so much that it barely means what it should. Even in churches that refer to this as “the Lord’s Supper” or “Holy Communion” have changed it to the point that the American holiday of Thanksgiving almost captures the idea more than what has been practiced in most churches today. What if our practice of the Lord’s Supper was more like that of our practice of Thanksgiving? I think we might capture the essence of what Christ intended. Happy Thanksgiving.
