Easter Communion

I wrote last week about attending the 8:00 a.m. Rite I Eucharist at Good Shepherd Episcopal. Despite my unfamiliarity with the language I felt comfortable at the service. I did take care to wear my Good Shepherd name tag, so the denizens of the Rite I service world would know that I was not new to Good Shepherd, even if I Communion waferwas new to the 8:00 service and Rite I. Everyone there was very friendly and gracious. It was a good feeling.

What was strange for me was when I went forward to receive Communion. I felt like a complete and total newcomer. But at the same time there was a real feeling of connection.

It’s not something I understand, but Communion is not something we understand with the left side of our brains, is it?
