The Way

Jesus made community personal
By selecting twelve to be confidants.
To bond together as His apostles
And share the grace He grants.

Jesus made Himself available;
Always a part of a community
So that when two or more gather,
He is among them in unity.

Jesus uses community
To develop our devotion;
Getting people on track
And setting us in motion.

Jesus wants His love
To always be demonstrated
By the way we have loved;
By the way we have related.

The Lord’s Supper is an occasion
Of joy for the Christian Community
So look forward to communion
Each and every opportunity.
