Unseen witnesses

There is something quite wonderful about celebrating communion with a housebound member in their own home.
From the carefully laid white cloth, kept specially for that purpose, to the perching of the elements in a tiny space amidst the clutter, each occasion is unique. Some communicants like to get down to business right away, others to have a wee blether first, while still others have an afternoon tea tray all laid out to be unveiled after communion has been celebrated.
Today, as I shared with a lady in her 90s, it felt as though her living room was crowded out with that "cloud of unseen witnesses". Together with all the saints we feasted on God.
