My old friend Alberta Herron recently passed away at the age of 93. Alberta was a wonderful Christian woman, one of the best members a church could ever have. She cared about people, and you could always count on her to faithfully fulfill her role in the church.
Alberta hated to see anything go to waste, so she took the leftover communion juice home and made grape jelly out of it. She would share this jelly with family members and church friends. If I ever suddenly felt close to God while eating a piece of toast, I suppose I have Alberta to thank for that!
Communion is a special time of remembering what Jesus did for us when he died on the cross to pay for our sins. Communion makes us feel close to God, so we should make every effort to participate in the Lord’s Supper every chance we get.
“On the first day of the week, we came together to break bread…”—Acts 20:7
