Chow as Communion

What's one of your all-time favorite foods? How often do you eat it? (Serendipity Bible 10th Anniversary Edition, page 1437).

Ever wonder why Jesus chose the Last Supper—supper—as the vehicle of Christian remembrance? One reason besides the ingrained existence of the Passover itself is in my view the communal nature of eating.

When I was mentoring children the most favorite thing we liked to do was eat together. Food is a great leveler—a testimony to our equality within the human family. We all equally need to eat and we all equally enjoy eating—salivation before good food is universal and the savoring of food unites all mankind irrespective of sometimes ugly dividers. Let us commune and chow down together often.
