This is the table, not of the church, but of the Lord.
It is made ready for those who love him
And for those who want to love him more.
So come, you who have much faith and you who have little,
You who have been here often and you who have not been here long,
You who have tried to follow and you who have failed.
Come, because it is the Lord who invites you.
It is his will that those who want him should meet him here.
(I have come across this communion invitation in a number of places, but have not been able to establish its origins or authorship. If you have can throw any light on this, I’d love to know.)
