I Still Have the Dress
by Jo Johnson
I grew up in St. John’s Lutheran Church in Mound and was confirmed there after one year of instruction, at age twelve. I have no memory of the Communion service; nor does my 94 year old sister! I know though, you had to be confirmed to take Communion. (I still have the dress! A white organdy!!)
During Lent 2011, we are encouraging the St. Philip the Deacon community to reflect on the Sacrament of Holy Communion — recalling early memories, describing memorable celebrations of Communion, or reflecting on how Communion informs daily life. This post is part of that series. We invite your reflections about Communion, as well. If you would like to submit something for this series, please send it to Pastor Cheryl Mathison at firstname.lastname@example.org.
