We went to Kroger as a family tonight. When we got to the juice aisle, our six-year-old, Joshua said, "Mom, can we get some grape juice?" I was surpised as I have never purchased grape juice for the kids to drink, only apple and orange. I said, "Josh, do you even like grape juice?" He replied, "Yeah, it tastes like community." We nearly lost it laughing in the grocery because we knew he meant, "It tastes like communion." After a moment’s thought, I realized Josh’s association of grape juice with communion was accurate. It is all about community. Thanks be to God!
