Just Food – 5. Feeding the Body of Christ: Sermon

Eating is central, both in the Eucharist / Holy Communion and to Jesus’ pictures of God’s Kingdom as the heavenly banquet. All our eating today – around the ‘Lord’s table’ and around our own tables, should reflect and anticipate the values of God’s coming Kingdom. The values that unite Eucharist and Banquet include: Eating together, Eating well, Eating with Jesus, and Eating in anticipation.
