I was an intern at a retirement center for around 2 years while I was at Covenant. Two things stick out from that experience: liturgy connects and Communion really means something.

For example, the Lord's Prayer and Apostle's Creed were employed at least 90% of the worship services (Sundays and Thursdays) and since many of the people could not read any longer because of poor vision, they connected, were refreshed, and strengthened by these familiar aspects of worship. (I shudder to think of what a retirement center service will be like when I am their age...Shout To The Lord, anybody??)

Also, the Sacrament of the Lord's Supper really struck me in a newer way. It was amazing to see how precious it was to those residents. Not only were they refreshed from hearing the Gospel and praising God, they were strengthened through Communion. As a Presbyterian, I claimed to believe "something was happening" during communion, but I think I really saw it there.

Bobby,

Yes, absolutely. We hope to administer the sacrament next time.
