Communion Graphics

There are many ways to draw Communion graphics. If you are a graphic artist I suggest you have several varieties in your portfolio. This one is of grapes and wheat. You could also have wine and bread or even a combination of all four. These symbols are used amoung most Christian denominations.

You might also consider handling this topic in a more contemporary fashion. Consider a graphic of several people passing and breaking bread as well. Add a phrase like: "Broken For You" These types of graphics are popular with "mega churches."

Don't forget to add traditional communion graphics to your collections as well. Communion cups and wafers are still very popular graphics!

Also, if you are developing a series of prints for a Christian audience, I would suggest adding a still life about Communion to your portfolio. Pastors are always looking for work like this to hang in their churches that is appropriate to their interests.

I've included a lovely old song about the Lord's Supper. C.M. (1873)

According to thy gracious word,
In meek humility,
This will I do, my dying Lord,
I will remember thee.

Thy body, broken for my sake,
My bread from heaven shall be;
Thy testamental cup I take,
And thus remember thee.

Gethsemane can I forget?
Or there thy conflict see,
Thine agony and bloody sweat,
And not remember thee?

When to the cross I turn mine eyes,
And rest on Calvary,
O Lamb of God, my sacrifise,
I must remember thee.

Remeber thee and all the pains,
And all thy love to me;
Yea, while a breath, a pulse remains,
Will I remember thee.

And when these failing lips grow dumb,
And mind amd memory flee,
When thou shalt in they kingdom come,
Jesus, remember me
