Thoughts to Ponder are my musings regarding community, things of the Spirit, and living as a Christ-follower. I don't offer the words of a professional or an expert; just a fellow traveler and explorer. Please don't take my musings more serious than I do. I've discovered a long time ago that I do not hold the keys of knowledge or wisdom. If I did, I misplaced them somewhere...typical.

The Lord's Supper [Quote]
"Macquarrie says that this scene could hardly fail to remind him of Jesus' last meal with his disciples on the night before he died: 'It is quite possible that he used much the same prayers at the Last Supper as I was now hearing from Abraham Heschel...[I]n Heschel's apartment I had a vivid sense of that Last Supper at which was instituted the Lord's Supper or eucharist, a word which itself means "thanksgiving."'" -Leonard J. Vander Zee, Christ, Baptism and the Lord's Supper, pp 140-141
