Holy Communion


Bread
Wholesome, earthy, basic...
is broken, dispersed, received.

Spirit and body fed, nourished, satisfied.
Baskets are filled with the crumbs,
always more than enough to feed the multitude.
The miracle is in the brokenness, the blessing.

He that is the Living Bread is present,
feeding, strengthening, blessing evermore.


Wine
Liquid red, robust vine-fruit...
causing the heart to be merry, man to rejoice.
Joy.

His blood, shed for sinners, sacrificed to bring the abundant life.


Feeding on Jesus,
drinking deep of His sacrifice,
slowly, worshipfully receiving the Body and Blood...
spirit is truly fed, soul-thirst quenched.

Stunningly beautiful, breathtaking awe,
Holy Communion.
