Then he took a loaf of bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.”
So often in modern times we hear about broken families–the pain, the hurt and the unwelcoming. In fact, it seems a small miracle to witness a family come together and lovingly share in the making of an old family bread recipe. Yet that is what I was invited to be a part of in Sacramento. Bread baked and broken together. Touched by the hands of all of the grandchildren and their loved ones. Keeping the ghosts lost loved ones close. Inviting everyone to be involved takes Divine Wisdom. Sophia was whispering through the welcome. Jesus rose with the dough. God touched everyone at the table.
