Weekly Photo Challenge: Dialogue

Sarah Tells Bruce a Joke

After receiving “Dialogue” as this week’s photo challenge, i immediately thought of this photo (even before reading the challenge). I also said dialogue to Sarah, and she instantly described this photo too! I know it’s not acurate , but thought i’d post something fun!   

So as a fun post, i’d love if you could comment below with a dialogue between Sarah & Bruce!! 😀

Daily Prompt: Uncanned Laughter

The Daily Prompt

Tell us about a time you (or someone else) said or did something unintentionally funny.

Yesterday at the church morning meeting during Holy Communion, Sarah and i were the last to receive the bread plate (Sarah usually reaches and passes me a piece as i can’t really see the plate etc) It is sometimes cut into nice little squares but this time it was a loaf of bread. Then……to my surprise Sarah dumped a massive chunk of bread into my hand (the biggest communion bread i’ve ever had!) This made me start laughing, and as the chuch was silent and somber i quickly switched my laugh into a smile.

I then started thinking how i was participating in an outward sign of an inward grace freely given from God through Jesus. It is an act celebrating Jesus’ gift of new life through his death and his resurrection. It is a celebration of the coming of the new creation first witnessed in and through Jesus. And if this is also a celebration of the FREE gift of new life, then why is everyone so somber? We seem to be so good at focusing on his death, and not so good at focusing on His amazing act of love that gives new life to anyone who chooses it.

Then my thoughts went to what Jesus Did, and continues to do 24/7 as he loves me (and you) that much! This always completely blows my mind as i really am not that special in my eyes, yet he created us and loves and values us more than we can comprehend!! 🙂

Quote from Rev. Edward F. Markquart

Jesus is the source of life, the source of eternal life, the source of the values of our daily lives, the source of love for our daily lives. The basic food staple of the world is bread and Jesus is the basic spiritual staple of the world.

Jesus is never just bread. Jesus is always the bread OF LIFE. Jesus is always the LIVING bread. As we consume bread, it gives us nourishment and energy for our physical lives. As we consume Jesus into our lives, he is the nourishment and energy for our spiritual, emotional and moral lives.

Is Holy Communion a joyful or somber celebration for you? Can it be both?

Joy cannot be pursued. It comes from within. It is a state of being. It does not depend on circumstances, but triumphs over circumstances. It produces a gentleness of spirit and a magnetic personality.
Billy Graham
