by Jeremiah Smith,
I've often wondered about the mystery known as communion (or the Eucharist). Sitting in a cafe a few days ago I was reminded of the passage where it says, "remember the LORD your God..." (Deut. 8:2). In thinking about communion I realized that perhaps it is less a mystery and more a reminder. Just as the passover celebration was to be a reminder of Gods faithfulness, so to is communion to be a reminder of Christs saving grace. It is that place where we are consistently reminded of our past while being constantly reminded of a future made possible only through Christ.
