We often joke about church being all about the food. But there’s a way in which that’s true. This Sunday we celebrate Holy Communion. That celebration was a full meal for the house churches Paul and others established early on.
Last week we talked about the problems surrounding where the meat for that meal came from. But that wasn’t the only source of conflict around that community feast. The church in Corinth wrote Paul for advice about the other problem, too, and Paul’s words of censure have made quite a few modern Christians afraid to take Communion
