communion

candles lit
the flames throwing dimly dancing lights
across the faces of the family
gathered together
to worship and
to commune
with God, with each other.

together
songs are sung;
instruments are played.
the Word of Yahweh is read;
eyes are closed.
they worship God together.

the Presence of the Holy One
permeates the worship space
filling the minds and hearts
of those gathered.
they are on holy ground.

the family knees
reflecting on the sacrifice of the Son
the love of the Father
under the guidance of the Spirit.

eat the bread of Life
drink of the vine of Christ
symbols of sacrifice.

remembrance of what has been done;
of the love that has redeemed us.

Thanks Mike. I enjoyed reading this post. The Eucharist has played an important part of my spirituality in the past few months. It is kinda sad to see that a lot of Church's don't partake in it that often.

I understand they don't want it to become habit, but I don't think habits are bad.

Making communion a habit does not make it a bad habit. I think what makes it a bad habit is when the person who is partaking in it no longer lends their entire mind to understanding what the body is taking a part in.
