We Need Communion

CommunionBreadWine“Gathering to eat at the Lord’s Table reminds us that grace is as common as bread, as sparkling as wine, and as necessary and invigorating as both. We need those reminders, for we live surrounded by an atmosphere rife with noxious poisons and convenience stores stocked only with confections. We need communion, which draws us together to contemplate grace, to be newly infused with grace,to be prepared for demonstrating grace. So to the table we come, and from the table we depart, nourished for life by encounters with the Lord.” – Dan Schmidt
