Sharing communion with the homebound offers a very special bonding opportunity. It also connects the individual with the congregation since it is an extension of Sunday Worship not experienced with on-line worship. Personalizing that experience requires very little more than a white cloth, a small tray, a Dollar Tree cruet and the elements. Holding the hand of the communicant during the reciting of the Lord’s Prayer and asking for names of those on the mind of the communicant to be remembered during the Eucharist also personalizes the commemoration of our Jesus’s Last Supper.
As a CLP, I wear my stole to emphasize the special nature of sharing the sacrament of Holy communion.
A Mug Rug comfort package is delivered to those who are ill or experiencing hard times/loses to let them know you (and perhaps your congregation) see them and care. Often a small home-baked snack is included.
