World Communion Sunday
Northminster celebrates World Communion during both services! The first Sunday in October was set aside by the Presbyterian Church in 1936 to celebrate World Communion Sunday. By 1940 the now National Council of Churches helped spread this celebration to other denominations. Those were turbulent time as the seeds of World War II were starting to grow. The need for Christians to collect in unity was apparent then as it is apparent now.
World Communion Sunday is a day for all Christians – of whatever background and of whatever theological tradition – to recollect that we are in fact one in Christ and that the table we receive communion is at God’s table – not our own.
Imagine an image of men, women and children of every language, color and nationality gathering in fields, straw huts, brick schools, wooden churches and stone cathedrals to praise God and entering into both a physical and spiritual communion with one another.
