Explaining Holy Communion

June 6, 2021

"Well, we've always done it this way." This explanation can be frustrating. This dynamic between how it was done before and how it's done now occurs a lot in religion. And frankly, the church has often done a poor job communicating WHY things are done a certain way. Nowhere is this more evident than the sacrament of Holy Communion. For two thousand years, the church has understood Holy Communion as essential to our faith and the centerpiece of worship. But WHY? In this sermon, Rev. Stephen Lohoefer shares the WHY behind Holy Communion.
