Brian Zahnd shares why the Eucharist is the central point of our service. This is the first week in a series focused on the core elements of our gatherings.

Kingdom Practices
This week, our kingdom practice is to respond to God’s invitation. In Brian’s teaching, did you sense God inviting you to embrace your work (whatever that may be) as sacred? In the grain and the grape, we learn that all of life is sacred. Or was God inviting you to expand your table? Is there someone with whom God is asking you to share a meal, a coffee, or a conversation?
