In Remembrance of Me

Today and tomorrow, churches all over the world will gather to partake of the bread and the fruit of the vine in remembrance of Christ's sacrifice, just as Jesus instructed his disciples at the last Passover meal He shared with them.

When the hour came, Jesus and his apostles reclined at the table. And he said to them, "I have eagerly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer. For I tell you, I will not eat it again until it finds fulfillment in the kingdom of God."

After taking the cup, he gave thanks and said, "Take this and divide it among you. For I tell you I will not drink again of the fruit of the vine until the kingdom of God comes."

And he took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, "This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me."

In the same way, after the supper he took the cup, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you.

Luke 22:14-20

One of my favorite memories from my high school church choir days was our singing of the musical Celebrate Life. Here's a beautiful song from that musical.
