The Meal

Andrew Jones has a good post, actually reviewing a book he had just read – I especially liked this part about Communion,similar thoughts to what I’ve been considering for the last while:

The church began with a meal. The Church needs to come back to the kitchen and get itself sorted again. The Church needs to rethink the puny wafer and thimble ritual and get back to the love feast which is a MEAL that takes TIME and happens MORE than once a week and has LEFTOVERS which can given to the POOR (the justice element) and resembles a PARTY that is full of HOPE towards the FEAST that awaits us with our SAVIOR who is not drinking wine until we get there to toast with Him. Jesus said DO THIS in remembrance of me. We would do well to ask “WHAT?”

Looking for ways to make communion more meaningful… I especially resonate with the “puny wafer and thimble” part, but am not sure what the alternative would/could/should look like.
