No fast food here

Reflecting on Jesus as the bread of life and the centrality of the table in the Christian community … a thought that may be used as a call to worship or in a communion service.

There’s no fast food here.

No dedicated drive-through lane
to ensure easy come and easy go.
No disembodied voice asking for your order,
urging you to repeat it
slower,
clearer,
louder.
No quick transaction with cash or card
furtively exchanged by fast hands
for a big, brown paper bag
with the top scrunched down for easy handling.
No super-efficient process, or processing,
that may leave you feeling full –
but not fulfilled.

This table belongs to the God
whose generosity never gives out:
the God of grace,
the God of love
who gives us this day
the real food of his flesh
the real drink of his blood
that we may live in him
and he in us.

There’s no fast food here;
just daily bread.

a Light-seed
simply seeking the Son
that Love may rise graciously to life -
both in me and through me.
