communion comedy

Grace and Whit both took communion for the first time today (one of many things I learned in yesterday’s pre-baptism class is that baptism, not confirmation, is the entree into communion).

They were both fairly hilarious at the altar. Whit asked the minister, quietly, “Does this cracker have nuts in it?” before politely saying “No thank you” to the wine.

Grace took the wine, grimaced, and walked back to the pew with me.

“What was that?” she asked

“Wine, Grace.”

“Just wine? Nothing else? I had real live wine?”

“Yes, Gracie.”


“Don’t worry, white wine is better.”

“Next time, can you ask them to use white wine?”
