Our son Chris celebrated his first communion today. I can't even begin to express how joyful it was to kneel next to him and receive Christ's Body and Blood with him. I cried.
One thing that I found particularly touching was that the LSB rite for First Communion Prior to Confirmation closes with the verse "He who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ." Phil 1:6.
Philippians 1:3-6, 9-11 was our wedding text. This text has meant more to me than I could ever say, but that God who began a good work in us is continuing to do so through us to bless our children as they are strengthened by His Word and Sacrament is a depth of meaning that really hit home today.
