Common Eating – The Meal Itself.

This post on the meal itself for Common Eating, is probably the one that has changed the most since I wrote it. I originally thought that I wouldn’t bother with any textbook. However, I think I’m going to add a cookbook to the list. Not just any cookbook, but the More with Less cookbook. This cookbook is the greatest contribution of Mennonites to the world, well, greatest after Pioneer Farmers Sausage, and Shmaunt Fat. I also think that I will…Continue readingCommon Eating – The Meal Itself.

We become careless in our hearing.  We are certain we know how the story goes and often miss obvious parts.  I was guilty of this as I was first reading last…Continue readingBread, Blessed and Broken Luke 24:13-35
