EPISODE 1: An interview with Rev. Dakota about Sacramental Action. 

Cassidy’s Communion Liturgy:

As we think about the Sacrament of Action, I want to invite us into thinking about the ways this sacrament relates to the shared Sacrament of communion. 

It is in our togetherness where God shows up and offers us ways to remember.

It is in our solidarity and communal living where God makes God’s self known by awakening us to deeper love, more full care, and tender trust. 

So I invite us into a time of this remembrance of just how deep the love of God is when we show up for each other and I invite us into a communion meditation.

No matter where you are — at work, at home, in-between the tasks of the day… I invite you to pause with me for these few minutes to remember together the meal which brings us together and binds us to unfathomable love. 

In Matthew chapter 26 it is said that when Jesus was eating a meal in the company of his beloved, he took bread, gave things, and broke it to share with his friends saying, “Take and eat; this is my body.” Then he  similarly took a cup and after giving thanks he said, “Drink from it, all of you. This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.” 

Wherever you are as you join me in this sacred memory, this meaningful meditation, I invite you to take a drink of your coffee, tea, water, juice and remember God’s presence, God’s friendship, God’s delight to share a meal with us in these reminders. 

Friends, it is now more than ever when we must tenderly remind one another that this great meal of solidarity, this great centering of togetherness, is the delight and reminder of our faith. It is a meal of grief, shared pain, joy, and curious wonder.

WILL YOU PRAY WITH ME?

GOD of our togetherness. You bind us together with the sacrament of communion. Sending us reminders in the bites and sips throughout our days. Go with us now as we seek to live lives of sacramental action. Lives invested in solidarity, community, and hope. God be with us in the moments between, remind us of your love and the truth that we belong to each other. Amen. 

The Lord’s Prayer from University UCC in Seattle, WA:

Our Creator, Spirit within us all,
Glorious and holy are you
May creation’s eyes be opened
and live in peace, love and joy
May your artistry be seen and lived
In this life and in dimensions unknown to me.
Grant us fulfillment of our needs,
Help us make a way for forgiveness
through reconciliation and peace.
Hold my heart on a path true
and please don’t leave me in the hard times
You are my “ruah” breath, my
comfort, my Abba, my Jehovah Jirah,
the One we seek in unity, and
mystery and comforting love.
