Yep, I'm late again. Sorry, folks!
The Lord’s Supper
It used to be that I would never think of handing over communion stuff to my kids. 1. They are little (6, 4, 2) 2. They are messy. 3. Do they really understand it?
Last month, my 4 year old asked if he could do it as well. So while my husband read the passages, I explained that we take communion to remember Christ's death for our sins, to celebrate him rising again to free us from those sins. That it is a very serious thing.
Probably not so much right at that moment.
So while my kids probably don't quite grasp the full significance of communion, I still welcome the chance to explain it to them, to pass out the bread and juice, to pray with them. Because while they may not understand it now, while we may only see as through a dark glass now, someday we will all understand, and we will all see clearly.
