Video transcript

The Lord's table, Eucharist, in our understanding was meant to bring people together in solidarity, in inner formation of the gospel which is about unconditional love. As you know, Roman Catholics will be reluctant to participate in Eucharist offered by Protestants. Protestants may be reluctant to invite Roman Catholics or Orthodox.
So we have got this lack of acceptance of lordship of Jesus as a host at this table. So we often say this is not our table. This is not our Eucharist. This is Lord Jesus and Lord Jesus is inviting everybody regardless whether they are Roman Catholics, Anglicans or Muslims or Hindus and whomever they are because love does not have boundaries. And this table, Eucharistic table, is about boundaryless love of Christ.
And therefore, we never hesitate to share fruit, of the food from this table with anybody. Obviously Muslims cannot participate in Eucharist in wine but they are never reluctant to accept bread which is offered from us to them in the name of Christ as a sign of peace, as a sign of reconciliation as a sign of common past and common future. And I think it is as simple as that.

Director's note

Malkhaz Songulashvili is a baptist pastor from the country of Georgia. He has been experiencing for many years how the Eucharist can be a place of welcoming everyone.
Not everyone will agree with his stance but it's worth listening to what he has to say. It's a engaging way of allowing this bound-less love to include everyone.
