The joy of Communion

Posted on: August 6, 2008

I was talking with a dear SiC yesterday and we were discussing Communion at churches around the UK. Why was it we asked that when we line up and file forward for Communion every Sunday (if you go to my church!) that we always seem to be so sombre…?

She said “I know, why do we look so down? It should be a celebration of the gift of life, hope and grace. I mean it’s like we act like someone died or something!”

Well, I thought it was funny.

But we should be respectfully joyful, remembering the gift but being not sorrowful so much as full of charity and joy.
