Thoughts on Communion

I do appreciate participating in Holy Communion at Church on Sundays. I find with my condition and unemployment I am stigmatised and demonised by much of the media and thus society. Confessing our sins each week at Communion helps me let go of such negativity and ill feeling.

Eating the bread and drinking the wine in remembrance of the body and blood of Christ helps renew me for another week. The world with it’s dogma, norms and oppressive attitudes can often misguide me. The Lord’s supper recenters my perspective.

My faith and going to Church grounds me. Jesus gives me hope as well as the values in how best to live. Jesus helps me let go of the physical concerns of the world and look towards the spiritual. I will stumble and fall but Jesus will be there to hold me up again 😇.
