Just a simple grape
In many congregations, children are welcome to come to the communion table with their parents to receive a blessing.Full Story

The article says that children receive nothing even those it says they receive "a word and a blessing." Possibly it is better to teach the children that God's word and blessing have great benefit for them, even though they do not see something.
One wonders, in Lutheran theology, if the children "wanted some grape juice too," do they really have any concept of the Real Presence of the body and blood of Jesus in the bread and wine -- at 3 years of age? Do they clearly understand the Lutheran doctrine of the Real Presence and clearly reject transubstantiation, consubstantiation, spiritual real presence, and symbolic presence of the body and blood of Jesus with the bread and wine.
Have Lutherans so separated first communion from confirmation that complete instruction in the sacrament is no longer necessary? Is this an ELCA things or do all Lutherans commune three year olds "after preparing them"?
