The Holy In The Everyday

On the last night he had a mouth to eat with, Jesus sat down with his disciples to enjoy a meal. He took bread in his hands and broke it and said something they found puzzling.  He said, “Do this in remembrance of me.” He was talking about meals they would eat later without him, and the fact that the simple act of breaking break and giving it to one another has in it the possibility of bringing him back. Like running your hand along a fence you ran your hand along fifty years before can bring back the smell of your grandfather’s beard. Sacred moments . . .
