Meals create community. It’s just what they do. We are connected with those with whom we share our tables. That can be a powerful force creating networks of mutual belonging. But meals can also divide us. Who’s not at the table? Whose ignored at the table? Who has more to eat? Who has less? All of these powerful possibilities—to build community and to tear it down—are present in the Lord’s Supper as well. This week, we dig into Paul’s advice for the Corinthians—and for us—about how to discern God’s community-building work among us so that our meals contribute to the good work of God in our midst.
