MOST RECENT PROJECTS
Each week at larrypatten.com I write “faithful and foolish” reflections on the encounters between the Holy and human.

I also write weekly thoughts about my hospice experiences at Hospice Matters.

Here's a snippet, a tease, from this week's (January 16, 2018) faith-infused thoughts about the five senses and Holy Communion:

*********

COMMUNION: THE SACRED AND THE SENSUAL MEAL

In a church I served, several of us arrived early, positioning a couple of bread-making machines throughout the sanctuary. With the batter already inside, they were switched on. We then hurried to other chores to prepare for that Sunday’s communion service.

When worship began, the fragrance of baking bread filled the sanctuary.

Mouth-watering.

Nose-tickling.

I’m guessing there was random stomach grumbling in the pews . . .
