Holy Meal 

There is no such thing as a free lunch. Unless of course you are God and you are: providing manna, feeding 5,000, or breaking bread with your disciples. Why is it that we have to add contingencies and conditions to what God freely gives? 

Given for ALL

A tender loving Father,

Gifts his children with food,

For the arduous journey of life,

Food none other than...


Rather than graciously gobbling it up along the way,

Like manna,

They stop and ponder

Hoarding and

Drawing lines

Where there are none,

Issuing childish edicts

About taking

As to who, when, why and with whom,

Forgetting what He said...

“Take and eat”


Take and understand, take and confine, take and redefine.

But, “take and eat,"

And we,

Being never ready, never worthy;

Always grateful

It will never be simpler,

Nor more profound

Than that

And only a GIFT,

When taken as such.

Music – John Michael Talbot “Communion Song"
