The important thing is understanding the significance of what we as Christians do when we celebrate communion. The Last Supper would have been the final Passover meal Jesus shared with his inner circle of Apostles. We know that the Passover Meal would have been on a Friday evening after sundown and by that time Jesus would have already died and he would have been in the tomb. The final meal he shared then would have been the preparation meal for Passover.
Nevertheless, in that final meal he shared with his disciples, he instituted what today we practice as “communion.” The word itself indicates it is something we do together. While some denominations practice “closed” communion (meaning only members of their church participate) others practice communion which is open to any and all.
The important part of communion is remembrance. We do this to remember Jesus – his birth, his life, his death on a cruel cross, his resurrection, his ascension and his waiting patiently for God to send him back to claim his children and that as home! Now, this Sunday, when you celebrate communion, remember Jesus and what he did for you and for me. Also, know that churches all over the world are doing the same thing as we remember this special day—and do this in remembrance of Jesus! Amen.
