Thoughts on the Lord's Supper:
I love Holy Communion, don't get me wrong. The awesome words, "the body of Christ for you, the blood of Christ for you"...and the meaning I see in the eyes of those who receive is humbling and beautiful. That all said, doing nine communion services in one day for shut-ins and nursing home residents gets a little...much. I hate it when it gets to be rote. By the end of the day, I realize I'm not thinking about what I'm saying. These words mean so much, what we share is so important, but I start feeling like a pizza delivery dude after the fifth time! I need to space these out over a couple of days. It'd be better for the people I'm visiting and me. Thank you God, that your grace is sufficient, and your blessing are given despite the brokenness of your messenger! Deep breath, three more to go, then I get to rest. Time to refill the wine bottle and wafer container!
