new life

I like communion. The symbolism works on so many different levels and/or facets. Today I am excited by the idea that in communion (and the events of Holy Week in general), God becomes one with us in our suffering, and we become one with him in his life and victory. His body is broken for us, his blood is shed for us, and we partake of it and gain nourishment and life in the new covenant. It's amazing, really.
