Food as Sacrament

Today in worship, our scripture is from Exodus 12 (the Passover) and Matthew 26 (the Last Supper).

These passages point to a meal – not a worship ritual, but a household meal – as a way in which God comes close to us and a way in which we practice our faith

It’s not unusual to talk about food during the season of Lent; the season of Lent is often when we give up something tasty as our Lenten sacrifice.

But what if, instead of giving something up, we were to be intentional about practicing our faith with every bite?

What if we were to see each mouthful as holy, as a way in which God comes near to us?

Would it change the way we eat? shop? cook?
