John Mark Hicks, Come to the Table: Revisioning the Lord’s Supper , explores themes of the Eucharist in such a fresh manner.
The Table of the Lord should be inclusive. The Table should transcend all cultural, ethnic and gender boundaries.
We sit with Christ and it is Christ who invites. We don’t do the inviting. It is his Table, not ours.
At this Table the Church visibly demonstrates and testifies to the universal inclusiveness of the gospel and of our Lord.
At the Table, the Church is One Body.
The Oneness is not tolerance but love and service to one another in Christ.
