The food, flowers, cards and the thoughtful words of comfort will never be forgotten. May God richly bless each of you is our earnest prayer. Gladys Adams Connie Adams Beverly Adams Janie and Larry Hattaway 4-19-1tc cant in the life of the Chris- tian as a part of Holy Week because of the tradition that tells us that this was the day on which our Lord instituted the service of Communion. We sometimes call the Com- munion a sacrament, which comes from the word, sacra- mentum, meaning an oath of allegiance. Communion, there: fore, should be a time we pledge anew our love and devotion to the Christ ~f the cross and the Christ of Communion. When we do this we are expressing our love for Him and pledging our love to one another. Each time we come to the Communion experience we need to recall this original mean- ing in remembrance of Christ and for His glory and good of the church. PRAYER: Lord, we pray that You will make Yourself known to us in the breaking of the bread and renew our lives by the power of the Holy Spirit working in us. Amen. THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Communion brings un to- gether in remembrance of Christ and as a community of believers. Richard P.
