BLC's Community Blog - the Gatherings, Life Groups, discipleship, social issues, prayers, worship experiences, insights into the Scripture... no random statements of who we had lunch with and what our dogs ate for breakfast. The place where strangers get to know us as a community, who we are, what we're like, how we function, and to experience what it'll be like to be a part of us.

The Communion of Saints

Here's a photograph I rediscovered recently while running through my archives. I made some adjustments on Photoshop and decided to go for a less-saturated, washed-out look, lots of white space and some grain the the dark areas. I felt it gave the scene a certain mood.

Communion

Even though it's a simple snapshot of an often under-appreciated 'ritual', I see and feel a lot going on in this one fraction of a second, captured in this one frame. Prayer... Contemplation... A sense of expectation... Solidarity... A feeling of peace, contentment, wander... Harmony... Love... Family...

I love Communion time as well. I don't know, but I've never done it this way before. The first time I had communion at BLC, I was frankly confused. Er, why didn't people tell me when to drink and eat? hehe. And I'm so used of doing it in such a "solitary" way, me, sitting without friends (or one or two friends) in a huge congregation, seperated and alone in a sea of people.

Funny, but when I took communion at BLC I felt as if we were taking communion like a family. Wonder if anyone else feels the same?
