  • Communion fun 101

    I'd take gooey white Wonder Bread, smash it flat and tear it into round communion wafers. Then I'd pour Kool-Aid into colorful shiny aluminum tumblers, the kind that used to sweat when they're cold, and that was my wine.

    I'd say the words, "the body of Christ" and "the blood of Christ," and I'd have my holy snack and then go on to play something else - Chutes and Ladders with my sister or put on my roller skates and skate around the block.
