Come to the Banquet
Music by Joseph M. Martin
Come to the Banquet is an anthem for communion and for Maundy Thursday services. Suggested corresponding lectionary readings include Exodus 12: 1-14, Psalm 116: 12-19, Matthew 26: 17-29, Mark 14: 12-25, Luke 22: 7-23, and 1 Corinthians 11: 23-26. One basic homiletical theme is an invitation to join the body of Christ is a feast of forgiveness at the Lord's table.
