Because I have been social distancing since the middle of March, I’ve not attended an in-person worship service with my congregation. I miss the personal connection that a congregation offers. I miss the communion, not only Holy Communion, but the communion of saints.
I continue to yearn for the day when we can return to the sanctuary and worship together as a community of saints. I can’t wait for the day that my pastor looks me in the eye and says, “This is the body of Christ given for you,” and “This is the blood of Christ shed for you.”
I will, with God’s help, wait for community and communion.
