The Lord's Supper - Communion - cannot be an empty ritual which has nothing to do with the attempt to be in community, to communicate, to reach out across the boundaries of our own families and support each other. Communion cannot be separated from our efforts to help and support and learn from each other. In the absence of that effort to form a real supportive and caring community, communion is not communion at all. It will do us no good, and might actually do us harm.
