Today at our church, we had communion.
I did the children’s story. I had brought a photo album and talked to the children about how photos remind us of people who are no longer with us physically but who loved us dearly and whom we loved dearly.
I mentioned Bill and showed the kids a couple pictures of us together.
Then, I said that communion was like that – a tangible reminder for us about Jesus and how much he loves us. “Eat this bread and drink this wine in remembrance of me.” When we take communion, he wants us to remember him and his love for us.
Photo albums and the eucharist – reminders for us about the love in our life.
