Communion is Not a Joking Matter!!!!
Every time I take Communion, I always think about how I should feel while I am taking it. I understand that Communion is a serious deal. It should be done in honor and respect. HOWEVER, I sometimes think that if you aren't weeping and snotting all over the place, you are viewed as unholy. I recently had Communion at church. It was awesome. We split up into groups and served each other Communion. It was pretty rad. Yet while I was taking it I felt like it was almost a celebration. I felt as I was taking Communion that I was celebrating new life and new beginnings. As magical as this may sound, there were some stares of disapproval. So here's the expected question, "How should one feel while taking Communion?" Then the second question, "Is it wrong to celebrate the Death and New Life that comes along with the crucifixion of Jesus?" Thoughts, Feelings. Concerns??
