Communion of Saints

I attended a funeral yesterday. I've never been to a funeral that included communion.

I immediately liked the idea of it. We call it the communion of saints. The minister who was officiating called it an appetizer for what was to come. we partake of communion, and we share it with those around us and with the whole church -- even those who have gone before us. What better way to celebrate the life of the person who has died than to share this meal?

Monty said that in communion we remember (the past), experience (the present) and anticipate (the future).
