Jesus said, “Make disciples.” That’s the Church’s mission.
But how do we do make disciples?
What is a disciple?
What do disciples do?
How do we measure success?
What’s the result?
How does it change the world?

The season of Advent is about waiting. And waiting usually comes with tension built in. The particular tension in Advent comes in the joyful Christmas promise that Jesus is Emmanuel, God with us. And yet Advent always reminds us that we are looking forward to his coming again, that we are still waiting to see him face to face. But if Christ is God’s presence with us, and if we are waiting on Christ to return, then we naturally ask: how is Christ present with us now? After all, none of us have seen or touched him in a way like that of his first followers after his resurrection. How is Jesus with us today? The Church’s answer from the earliest days is simple: Christ is present in the bread and wine of communion. He is present at his table. We’ve saved you a place.
