Darren McGhee gave the Communion Meditation at Colony Christian Church Sunday with “Folding the Laundry” from becomingcloser.org.
How is folding the laundry like Communion? Like doing laundry, Communion is done with ordinary things: wine and bread, he explained. It’s the presence of Christ that transforms them. They are both a time of setting things in order. With the laundry, you fold and stack the clothes into neat piles. During Communion, if there is some part of your life that is not right, bring it to God and ask him to set it in order. Also, no one usually disturbs you when you’re folding the laundry, just like during Communion. This gives you time to listen to God and reflect on his voice. They are both a time of cleansing, your laundry with soap — your soul with the body and blood of Jesus Christ.
Pastor Chase Riebel gave the sermon on “Church — The Body of Christ.” Christ is the head of the church, the first of everything, and God’s embassy is the church here on Earth. God uses the church to display his wisdom to all unseen rulers and principalities.
