The Bread of Life is whole wheat!

My friend is a priest at Duke. On Wednesday night I went to the Eucharist because the bishop was presiding.

During communion, the bishop said, "The body of Christ, the bread of heaven" and put awafer in my hand. I put it in my mouth and thought, "Nutty, nice...Oh my God the body of Christ is WHOLE WHEAT! Thanks be to God. At least we get our fiber."

Of course this friend of mine has whole wheat wafers. She is quite the gourmande. She would probably say, "Jesus said, 'I am the bread of life' and not 'I am the tasteless, waxy, wafer of life.'"

Who knew? For some reason it gives me hope that the body of XP is not some overprocessed, bleached, white flour with no semblance of organic matter.
