The Mystic Sweet Communion

When I “adopted” children in the neighborhood some years ago, I at once took them to church. Sometimes I wonder why. What did I wish for them? Here's the gist of it.

I wanted to share with them the stability based on love found in the church. I wanted them to experience the “solid rock” that their hearts and minds could validate first hand – that the disciplines of love bring peace, tranquility, and joy unmatched by anything else. I wanted them to gift them with conviction – a conviction that with the help of God they can master the steadfast principles necessary for true happiness - all well within their grasp. Did the church “take” in the minds and hearts of my children? Some would say, by outward signs, there is little evidence of it. But we made an unspoken pact during those years to continue throughout our lives an enduring frankness and honesty. Communication with my children continues unabated, and I am fully persuaded that the legacy of church in their lives continues to germinate with abiding force and power.
