All I did was sign up at the 21-Day Challenge website which took me just a couple of seconds.I received a few products in the mail but then of course I picked up at the other LISTERINE® products I needed at my local Walgreens.

For those that have been with me a while you already know that I am Roman Catholic and am proud of that. I always love learning and understanding my religion better and even those Holy Communion: Celebrating God with Us is 

About the Book

Experience God in the here and now through Communion.

This book explores how celebrating the presence of God With Us through Holy Communion nourishes our souls, refreshes our sense of community, and equips us for mission in Christ’s name. Yet many Christians do not understand Communion or see it only as an empty ritual. Because of that, low worship attendance or enthusiasm commonly accompanies Communion Sundays—leaving churches feeling spiritually depleted. This book provides insights and practical suggestions for giving this sacrament a more prominent role, not just in church life, but in the Christian formation of individuals.

For small groups, Sunday school classes, and as a preaching resource, Holy Communion: Celebrating God with Us by Kenneth M. Loyer and general editor William H. Willimon is suitable for a four-week study and includes discussion questions at the end of each chapter.

The Belief Matters series assists pastors and clergy in explaining fundamental elements of the church and its worship to congregations. Holy Communion is the second in the series and follows Incarnation by William H. Willimon.

My Thoughts

This is a great short read!  Now this is written from a Methodist perspective, and it does often refer back to the Methodist Eucharistic liturgy. That said as a Roman Catholic I still feel that I benefited from the way he explains the past, present and future aspects of the Lord’s Supper. I came away feeling as though I understood the Holy Communion so much more and have a new appreciation for it.

Purchase the Book

You can purchase Holy Communion: Celebrating God with Us at Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
