Yesterday was World Communion Sunday. In addition to some special liturgy, I dressed the table differently.
I had our sexton bring in a longer table than we normally use for communion so the presentation would be more dramatic. Instead of covering the table with a tablecloth I used blankets that my husband brought back from Lesotho (a country in southern Africa). Then I dressed the table with scarves, jewelry, pottery and other trinkets from around the world.
One of my church members baked so much bread! We used most of it as display and then put the bread that was distributed in baskets instead of the silver plates that are usually used.
I actually broke my ankle last week, so I wasn’t able to do as much as with the sanctuary as I initially wanted to. But in lieu of my hobbling around, I was happy with the way the table turned out!
