Inspired by the sacrament prayers in Moroni 4-5
Believers in other generations
also gathered to partake
of broken bread and blessed wine
on their tiny, remnant isles of faith
dotting oceans of time.

Today I reminisce with them,
savoring heirloom prayers
laid up for just such purpose
as turning hearts together,
connecting us in archipelago

across millennia as we touch
bread to tongue and sip from cup,
draw simultaneous breath to witness
as one family under one name—
flesh and blood of Jesus Christ.

Soon I will lift my head
to continue my journey alone,
but for this bridged moment
I sit and listen to them whisper
of better days yet to come.

Inspired by the Come, Follow Me readings for November 30-December 6
