The Holy Communion is an act of worship we engage every Sunday. It is also known as the Lord’s supper as well as the Eucharist. A term with its roots in the Greek ‘eucharisto’ which means ‘giving of thanks’.
Though it’s a seemingly simple act where Christians break bread and drink of the cup, holy communion is an important act. Therefore we should seek to understand (especially if you are new to the faith) why we do it because otherwise our participation becomes meaningless, displeasing to God and detrimental to us also. So in today’s sermon I am going to address three important truths that all of us should be aware of.

- Early Druids in France worshipped Samhain on 1st of November
- They believed evil spirits left to harm people in such nights
- People thought leaving food for them will neutralise the danger
- Later on the Catholics made it a Christian holiday which they called "All Saints' day"
- So the night before became the "Hallowed Evening"
- Later on it was shortened as "Halloween"
Halloween is not for the Children of God! But why? Let me explain you.
So you start a blog or a web site for your church . But the trouble is your old fashioned financial committee wont release funds for the job. If you want to start a church blog there are many free blogging platforms out there. If you want to host your church web site, there are many free web hosting services. But the problem is you cannot customize your blog the way you want. If it’s a web site within a couple of days your web site would clutter with thousands of annoying ads.
This is where 000webhost service can help you. A service which provides CPanel powered web hosting for $0. I am hosting this blog with a commercial hosting provider, but this has the same features offered by my hosting provider for free. Consider the features in this free service.

I have been a born again Christian for the last 21 years and in full time ministry since the year 2000, (Almost 13 years.) One of the most surprising discoveries I made after my conversion was that problems do exist in the church too! In fact I learned sometimes you have more problems in the church than it is in the world.
As a pastor I have been an observer of these problems as well as a victim sometimes. Recently I took time to reflect on these situations of the past and I have come to understand man’s desire to be in the limelight is the driving force behind many Church problems.
