I had an interesting moment today when I was filming the communion segment for the Bridge service. I wanted to be outside for the Bridge@Home service since the scripture for Sunday is about creation. I set the chairs this way and that way to try to find a nice background for the video. Not too much sunlight in the back. Get rid of the neighbor’s eaves full of weeds. I finally found a good location next to the still dormant hot tub which would provide a good place to set the bread and the wine challis for communion.
I was in the middle of the prayers for communion when I heard a familiar sound. Theo, my forever hungry basset hound, had clearly just jumped through the doggy door to the garage and had joined me on the porch. Uh-oh. I had, apparently left the door from the house to the garage open! What to do? I was most of the way through the communion prayers and didn’t want to start over. Might he miss the bread setting up on the edge of the hot tub??? Not a chance. He dashed to the spa, stretched his long body up, as only a basset hound can do, and made off with my good loaf of homemade communion bread! Naughty dog! Lucky for me, I had an extra loaf in the kitchen which is where I closed in my chow hound before the next round of filming!
Now I wish I could say I have a great spiritual point to share with you regarding my naughty food thief, but I don’t. It was just a funny moment in my day as I am serving our church and thought it might make you smile.
