“The word eucharist (the more liturgical term for what many of us call Communion or the Lord’s Supper) comes from the Greek word eucharistia, meaning “the giving of thanks.” So when we partake of Communion, we are engaged in gratitude. Gratitude to God. Gratitude for the gospel. From guilt, through grace, to gratitude … all celebrated as we meet together at His table.”
