COMMUNION revisited


I revisited the idea of God with us- the Trinity in communion, inspired by Richard Rohr's meditations, paralleling the visit of the three travelers to Abraham with an invitation to join in the feast. I used a circular photocopy of the Rublev icon of the Trinity, a labyrinth to symbolize the paths that bring us to the table, and a stamp with a small cross inside a circle, the work of redemption that brings us together at the holy meal. "One Bread, one body, one Lord of all..." This music is used in both pieces. It was written by John Michael Talbot. I noticed that Communion 4 has other music as well. Oh dear, I'm not a musician so I can't identify it. I know it came from a liturgy at Church of the Servant, so I'm sure it's liturgical. I'll ask a musical friend! My friend Sara comes through for me once again! The other piece is a favorite of mine "Gather Us In" by Marty Haugen (though the link is to a kind of hokie version).
