Reading: Psalm 34: 1-10, 22 (Click to read text)
Reflection: This Psalm was written by David, a long time before Jesus came to earth. But yet, it says in this passage, "Taste and see that the Lord is good." When I read that line, I immediately thought of Holy Communion. We often hear that line before partaking in Eucharist. But when David wrote these words, the Last Supper had not even taken place yet.
Which reminded me that God's story is so interwoven. Jesus is present in the Old Testament readings. And it reminded me that our God is part of all our senses: touching, eating, smelling, hearing, and seeing. How great to be reminded of that.
This Sunday, as many congregations commemorate All Saints Sunday, it will be good to remember the saints and their impact on our lives. It will be good to celebrate their faithfulness. And, it will be good to remember how they now can taste and see that the Lord is good. --Chad Hershberger, Camp Mount Luther Director
