Tonight, was the last session of a Bible study I’ve been facilitating for the last couple of months. As has become tradition for our group’s studies, we concluded this final session with a service of Communion. We stood in a large circle around the make-shift altar, and the minister led us in the liturgy. I lifted my eyes just before the prayer’s amen and caught a glimpse of heads bowed, bathed in candlelight. It took my breath away, as it always does. We ranged in age from early twenties to eighty-something. There were gray heads and dyed heads, bald heads and and a ponytail. I inhaled the moment and whispered a thank-you. For no matter our ages, no matter our stages… we are His.
