by Rev. Peter Holman
On 15th May Rev. Peter Holman wrote to his congregation: "As we reach the culmination of this extraordinary Easter time and move into the 10 days of Ascension I would like to share some thoughts that will hopefully be helpful as we grapple this year with how to come to terms with the reality of abnormal times for religious worship. These thoughts should serve to deepen a little more our insights into how we can make the receiving of Holy Communion ever more real. This is partly for the remaining weeks of closed churches, and especially for the time when we be able to come to church again, but, for a while, without receiving physical communion. I shall explore ways in which we can all participate more powerfully in the reality of Christ in us, receiving His Body and Blood as medicine that makes whole."
He asks the question: "But how will it be to sit there, without being allowed to come forward to receive Holy Communion?"
In an eight-page letter, Rev. Peter Holman deepens our understanding of the Holy Communion and how we can participate in reality even when we cannot physically receive the transubstantiated bread and wine. The full letter can be read by clicking here.
