Memorial Weekend Communion Devo

Here’s my short communion devotional from church this morning:

Every year, as a nation, we set asside the last Monday in May as a day of remembering. We call this day Memorial Day.

Specifically, Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. It’s a time to say thanks and remember the sacrifices that have contributed to the freedoms we have today.

Every week, we as a faith, set asside this time on Sundays to have our own time of remembering. We call this time Communion.

During Communion we remember our savior, Jesus, who died and was raised from the dead for the forgiveness of our sins. We take some bread to represent his body, and some juice to represent his blood, and we share it with each other, as a community, in remembrance of him.

Let us take time to participate in this act of remembrance right now
