Many of us go to church weekly, and take communion on a regular basis, but have you ever thought about what it should be?
We in the modern church take communion normally as a piece of bread and a small amount of grape juice, and while those are the two things Jesus used to symbolize his body and blood, that was not the way Christians celebrated Him after his death. Here is what Dictionary.com says communion is:
com·mun·ionnoun1.( often initial capital letter ) . Also called Holy Communion. Ecclesiastical .a.the act of receiving the Eucharistic elements.b.the elements of the Eucharist.c.the celebration of the Eucharist.d.the antiphon sung at a Eucharistic service.2.a group of persons having a common religious faith; a religious denomination: Anglican communion.3.association; fellowship.4.interchange or sharing of thoughts or emotions; intimate communication: communion with nature.5.the act of sharing, or holding in common; participation.
