    This is great, David. In other churches, I’ve been concerned about the practice of giving very young children communion. At Restoration, it has been reassuring to see the children reverently receiving the sacrament, and the youngest folks being prayed over.

    It is my prayer that this class will be a wonderful time of learning about the way by which the sacrifice of Christ is made present.

    How funny—we had that same thought, along the lines of “Can Erik get communion AND a blessing?” because we and he both value that so much. He will be he one to decide, but it’s helpful to think about phrasing the choice like you’ve outlined it. Thanks!!

    I think this is a great idea. Having grown up in the Roman Catholic Church, one of the most memorable moments I had was receiving my first Communion. Like baptism, I think a child’s first communion should be a “big deal.” Kudos to you David!
