As we continue to explore the sacraments this Eastertide, pastors Erica, Sarah, and Steve begin to look at Holy Communion (known also as The Lord's Supper, the Eucharist, and the Sacrament of the Altar). And as we did with our conversation about baptism, we'll trace the through-lines from Jesus and his practice to the witness of the New Testament era church and then to later church history.  But starting things off, we turn to the borrowed upper room in Jerusalem where Jesus celebrated the Passover with his disciples, hours before his betrayal and arrest, when Jesus took the unleavened bread of the passover and remaining cup of wine and imbued them with new meaning, pointing to himself as a new kind of passover lamb.  What did Jesus' disciples think was happening, and how much might they have understood? What do the gospel writers want us to know about that moment, and how does it connect to our ongoing practice in Christian worship?  Join the conversation here on this week's Crazy Faith Talk!
