Communion With Enemies

In by Chris on November 11, 2011 at 2:57 pm

“Do you believe that God manifests himself in our very flesh?” thundered the pastor.

“Yea!” shouted the congregation.

“That God is present in everyone, even our worst enemies?”

“Yea!”

“That God is present in this time of horrible war, even if we can’t see how?”

“Yea!”

The pastor paused. “Come, then, to share together the Lord’s body in holy communion.” He lifted a mangled human arm. Over the congregation’s stunned gasps, he intoned, “Lord, you dwell in the flesh of our enemies. When we partake of them, we are united with you.” He ripped a bite-sized chunk from the arm.
