World Wide Communion Sunday- 10/03/2010

Last Sunday our church took part in World Wide Communion Sunday. We learned that takes place the first Sunday in October. When you're attending a church with a congregation made up of people from all over the world, this makes it especially special. The week before we were encouraged to bring a bread or staff of life food from our home country. If we wished to participate, we were to bring our item for the table before church so that it could be used in the service as part of communion. We decided to participate and appropriately picked up a dozen Dunkin' Donuts to offer others.
Preparing the table!

After the service all the foods were put out to share. We ate rice balls, swiss chocolate, French cheeses, hummus, fresh bread, and homemade peanut butter to name a few things. We also met a man name Samson from India. He recently moved to Bangkok from Dubai, but is from India. We told him that we would love to go to India sometime. He told us to let us know when, his family lives in the north near the Himalayas and we could stay with his parents. You never know when you are going to make connections in this town!
