The Meal Jesus Gave Us

1 Cor 11:18-34, NRSV

Reflections

Charis (grace) always demands eucharistia (gratitude). Grace and gratitude belong together. Gratitude follows grace as thunder follows lightning. — Karl Barth

  • Don’t mess with my food (Ice dirtier than toilet water)
  • Jesus’ Meal gave us:
    • community
      • yet we can still somehow use the meal to divide us, not having it as community, as described in the scripture
    • memory or remembrance
      • it is not just to recall, it is to re-apply, to take it in
    • hope
      • that would lead to transformation
