I assisted in communion this morning at church. This is one of my favorite things to do in worship. I served the wine/grape juice to our congregation. That wine/juice is symbolic of the blood of Christ which was shed for the sins of humanity.

This is a great reminder that blood donors are important….whether it be Jesus or his children.
