The living and the dead

Sometimes I am overwhelmed - in a good sort of a way - by the mystery of communion.
And, despite the fact that in the Church of Scotland we regiment it and formalise it and generally sanitise it - even before swine flu - yet the Holy Spirit still manages to get in there and make communion glorious and tantalising - a glimpse of things to come.
Today we made a giant paper chain, symbolising our connectedness, not just with one another but, in communion linked to saints throughout the world in heaven and on earth.
Mystery, joy and thanksgiving.
