Welcome to the First Baptist Church of Detroit

Looking ahead to tomorrw night's 7 PM Maundy Thursday service and communion here is a thoughtful piece I ran across. Be blessed and think more deeply about the Lord's Table and your place at it:

At God's Table

It would not have been God's table

if they hadn't all been gathered around it:

the betrayer and the friend

the power-hungry and the justice seeker

the faithful and the fickle.

When Jesus poured the wine, and the bread was broken;

when everyone could eat -

the outcast and the beloved

the arrogant and the gracious

the wrong-doer and the wrongly done by -

the table became a foretaste

of love made real

and of a world made whole.
