Kneeling Before a Child
Our most recent communion was by intinction. One by one, the congregation came forward to take a piece of bread and dip it into the cup. A very tall deacon was one of the servers. When a woman came with a little girl, he was almost too tall just to lean over; instead he got down on his knees so the child could reach the bread. And although we are deep into Lent, I thought about Christmas, when we kneel before another Child. And I realized that kneeling and serving that Child is not just something for December, not just something for the manger, but for any time, every time, including Lent.
