Communion with Emmanuel

Sometimes I struggle to direct my thoughts during Communion.  It's such a profound, holy moment, kind of high pressure.  Think on the right things.  Engage.  Be here.  I mean, whether you believe the bread and wine are symbolic or literal, it's the body and blood of Christ.  That's a big deal.

Recently, my mind followed this train of thought to a new discovery.

Immanuel,
also spelled Emmanuel,
means God with us.
Communion,
Community,
Derived from Communio,
sharing in common,
An especially close relationship.
Wine.  Juice.
Bread.  Wafer.
With the people around me,
With the believers everywhere,
To my King,
and from His heart to mine,
I breathe and hear these words:

"I am in this with you."
