As a Roman Catholic teenager, Holy Communion was served every Sunday. When I started attending a Methodist Church in college, Communion was only held once a month. One of my favorite songs that prepared me for Communion was One Bread, One Body. I was introduced to this song on a Walk to Emmaus Weekend. Yet, there are new songs like Communion by Brooke Ligertwood.
Now as they were eating, Jesus took bread and, [e]praising God, gave thanks and asked Him to bless it to their use, and when He had broken it, He gave it to the disciples and said, Take, eat; this is My body. 27 And He took a cup, and when He had given thanks, He gave it to them, saying, Drink of it, all of you; 28 For this is My blood of the new covenant, which [[f]ratifies the agreement and] is [g]being poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins, Matthew 26:26-28.
When churches were forced to close during the Coronavirus, Christians were deprived of this special experience with other brothers and sisters of faith. Hopefully, as things have gotten back to normal now in 2022, Communion Sunday is much more appreciated. May Brooke’s song Communion prepare your heart for the next time you break bread and pass the cup in church.
