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

Feeding the Body of Christ

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 – with others, with strangers, with those who produce food
  • Eating well – quality and ethics in eucharist and all our meals
  • Eating with Jesus – both in terms of presence and values
  • Eating in anticipation – of God’s coming Kingdom
