There is a lot going on in today's passage. Due to the length it is only read three times on the podcast, if you need another read of the text take the time to read it and really let it sit in. There is a lot going on here. If you need to take it in pieces, allow yourself the time and flexibility to do so.
Toward the end of this passage is the institution of the Lord's Supper. This Sunday, the majority of United Methodist Churches (and churches in many other denominations) will celebrate Holy Communion in their worship services. Allow today's reading to sit with you. May these words both form your understanding of the Lord's Supper and transform your experience of Holy Communion.

Elizabeth does not take no for an answer. She's determined, driven, and does not give up. If you need someone in your corner, I'd suggest Elizabeth. She goes to bat for the things and people she believes in, and she's notorious for getting things done. She's loud but listens well. She's sarcastic but supportive, confident but willing to learn. Elizabeth is a pastor, preacher, teacher and in her spare time a wife and mother to three kids. She loves to share a good meal, but be forewarned, she'll definitely be late.
He brings his own french press coffee with him wherever he goes, but happily shares it with anyone who needs a pick me up. His dreads have a power all their own. He'll call you on your BS, but in a way that makes you grateful for his wisdom. He's the guy you want to hang out with over any kind of beverage. His favorite non-holiday is Pentecost, and the Holy Spirit is his jam. He's a pastor, a wise-man, a husband, a father of two girls, a caffeine addict, a native Missourian, and an advocate for justice. He hates wearing shoes.
