As we turn the calendar to October, many of us will be thinking of a treasured tradition at APC, the joyful feast that grows directly from World Communion Sunday. Sharing breads from around the world is a treat for both the body and the spirit as we gather around tables and enjoy new breads and those lovingly made year after year by members who want to share them.
We hope on this fall weekend you might put some of those new ‘quarantine baking skills’ to work to produce one of these favorites or a traditional family recipe. Then consider sharing this bread with a neighbor or friend in need of connection to continue the spirit of APC’s tradition by dividing it or using a second loaf if you are worshipping online for communion during our livestream worship Sunday, October 3, at 10am.
Of course we are disappointed we cannot observe this special tradition in the same way on this World Communion Sunday, but recognizing the one Lord’s Table which stretches across boundaries of time and space will still be our focus. Perhaps baking and sharing with a neighbor can point us to the gospel which draws us to one another and reminds us of our connections both personal and spiritual. To that end Worship Council is grateful to Sally Bowie for providing these recipes. Sally has helped to spearhead this celebration with many helping hands over the years and collected these attached recipes she has made.
