Communion ware from global communities was distributed to congregation starts after use at the 2009 Churchwide Assembly. Those congregations are now responding with thanks. Joshua Price, involved in an emerging ministry in Paradise, Calif., said: "They are not only beautiful but the spectacular stories with each piece are inspiring. As a result, we gave our previous set of vessels to another intentional community [that] a pair of our interns are starting the next town over. We have relayed the stories behind the gifts on several different occasions to many others."
