Let us be in prayer for all who live in the path of Hurricane Sandy. Thanking God that the Tsunami didn’t greatly affect Alaska and Hawaii. I wish I had spent a little more time (and money, if I had it) at the Newport News Greek Festival yesterday. Spinakopida is sooooooo good!
(introduction) Holy Communion is a practice that all Christians participate in.
(antithesis) Oddly enough, there are different doctrines about this, even within our own Baptist denomination
