Mar 23, 2015: We Become What We Eat

Robert E. Webber

What nourishes and transforms us at bread and wine is the disclosure of the whole story of God—creation, incarnation, re-creation—which takes up residence inside of us as we take and eat, take and drink. For in this symbol a reality is present—the divine action of God redeeming his world through Jesus Christ. . . . We become what we eat—living witnesses to Christ who lives in us.

-Robert E. Webber, Ancient-Future Worship: Proclaiming and Enacting God’s Narrative (Grand Rapids, MI: Baker Books, 2008), 146.
