“The body and blood of our Lord, Jesus Christ, strengthen you and keep you in his grace. Amen.”
Such a beautiful and meaningful expression of our faith sadly turns into controversy. It’s as if we didn’t even hear the Post Communion Blessing, that these earthly elements, blessed and received, fill us with Jesus’ strength and grace, as we bicker over the particulars:
Children four years of age through sixth grade will receive an Evite.
All others are invited to sign up at the church office, or indicate your attendance on your welcome card after worship. firstname.lastname@example.org / 952-881-5801.
Between now and then, it would be fun to hear your comments on these:
What does it mean to you to receive communion?
What questions do you have about communion?
