Seeking a sacred place where you can encounter God, a place where blessings and strength abound? The Lord’s Supper can be such a place.
Food for the Journey focuses on the rich meanings woven into the ancient tapestry of the Lord’s Supper. Meanings Christians in the first century knew so well but about which we today know so little.
This meal is our touchstone, our reminder of God’s gracious love. More than wine and bread, the Lord’s Supper is an oasis, a sacred time spent with Jesus at the Table.
Those moments of absorbing Christ into the marrow of one’s life caused devout people over the centuries to see the Supper as the most essential food for life’s journey.
No matter where you are on your walk with God, these meditations will
- Draw you closer to the heart of God
- Make Communion more meaningful
- Provide strength for the journey ahead.
Written conversationally, the author enriches Food for the Journey with insights gleaned from cultures around the world.
