It never ceases to amaze me….

We bring him simple elements of bread and wine, gifts of the earth and the work of our hands.

We offer him these gifts, but when they come back to us from the altar – when they are placed in our hands and on our lips – they are no longer the same bread and wine.

Now, he offers us his body and his blood so that we can be one with him and one with his Father.

He asks us to love his creation and all his people the way he does.

And because his Spirit now lives within us, we can.

Amazing.

About Selah Seeker

I first became acquainted with the Community of Jesus in 1970 when I was an undergraduate at Brown University, serving a Baptist church in Rhode Island. In 1988 I moved to the Community with my wife, our two daughters, and our son. Today I serve on the clergy staff of the Community. I have made my living working for a residential construction company, as the contract manager and construction supervisor. Since 2001 I have enjoyed acting with Elements Theatre Company, and today, at 61, I am the oldest member of the company. Working with young and vital actors will, I believe, slow my aging process as we encounter the fascinating challenges of our craft together. When I am not at church, on a job site, at the Pastorium, or on the stage, I enjoy playing fingerstyle guitar to our 19-year-old tiger kitty, Raffi.
