The more I get into theology and reading and writing and naming what it is I believe, the more I know I long for simplicity. Simplicity should not be confused with simple faith or easy answers. I noticed last week while I was decorating the communion table for Baccalaureate that decorating the table does not fit with my theology at all. It seems like we are dressing up the holy meal, making it appear to need added beauty to make it appealing. I struggled too with the time spent doing it and the expense it would take over time to do this over and over again. So I said it, I hate that we decorate the communion table with fabric and art and fancy serving pieces.
Today I am grateful to know where I stand and to be ok with that.
