Communion: Proclaim Death and Life

I’ve been turning over the phrase from 1 Corinthians 11:23-26, “proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes”.
Why would we proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes?  Why not proclaim, “He is Risen” instead?
Communion as the Lord designed is a time for us to mediate on his body which was broken for our sins.  We think about how Jesus shed blood and died for us.  Taking communion is a very humbling experience.  It puts us in remembrance of who we are in comparison to who Jesus Christ is.
We have a time for proclaiming ‘He is Risen” and announcing to the world the power of God who raised up Jesus from the dead.  But on a daily basis we are reminded of our great need for forgiveness and for everything Jesus is willing to give.
In just a few days of this series, I’ve seen my daily shortcomings and am in awe of the man who gave up all heavenly power and glory to show how great God’s love really is- even for me.
Does all of this thinking about death and dying and the cross leave me brokenhearted and depressed?  No quite the opposite.  I feel loved.  I feel whole.  I feel clean.
I feel connected.

In Christ, Anne Grove

Whose Got Your Back?

I have a continuing fascination with Olympians.  Women’s gymnastics was my favorite Olympic sport to watch in 2016. Several times the gymnasts told their teammates, “I’ve got your back”.  They didn’t say this randomly but just before a teammate was about to perform. I did a quick Google search through team interviews to see if they…
