Today our congregation celebrates the first communion of this new year. We gather, virtually, at the table where Christ is the host. We partake of the tiniest portion of bread and wine whose taste is perfectly ordinary. It is hardly a meal to rival the groaning boards of so many Christmas feasts. But that is not the point, is it? Our purpose as Christ-followers is not to bask in the “life of the party.” It is to celebrate, in Christ, the party of life!
- John 1:1-9
