Paul, in I Corinthians 10:23-34, reminds us that if we would eat and drink this Supper to our benefit, we must be looking in four directions. In communion, we must be looking back, looking ahead, looking within and looking around.
Something special is about to happen this morning. Something miraculous. Paul in chapter 10 of this same letter calls it a "participation in the body and blood of Jesus Christ." We know it as communion. As we take a piece of bread and cup of juice, we will be participating in a mystery.
