Small Communion

I was taking communion in the rather lovely chapel at The Hayes Conference Centre in Swanwick recently. I’ve taken communion hundreds of times, but on that morning as I took the bread I noticed how small it was. A tiny piece of bread to represent the fullness of Christ’s body and sacrifice. Shouldn’t it be bigger, more grand somehow more significant than a small sqaure of ordinay bread.

But I guess that’s part of the mystery and hope of the salvation Jesus offers. It doesn’t need big gestures or extravagant gifts. A small piece of bread, a sip of wine an open heart, and perhaps the willingness to accept that God can meet us in very simple small gestures.
