DIY Communion: demand for Jesus' flesh & blood soars

BLESSED Communion, a Chicago-based company that manufactures pre-filled disposable Communion cups, is reported being deluged with orders for its product ahead of Easter Sunday.

The sealed cups contain grape juice and a single wafer provided in separate compartment on top.

...

The company manufactures the cups in a 15,000-square-foot facility for customers including churches, ministries, faith-based organsations and individuals around the world.

The surge in demand for the cups has coincided with the fast spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.

2. I heard a minister give a sermon about Communion that was fascinating

He talked about how in different places around the world, Christians couldn't always get "official" elements for their services. Accordingly, they would use what they had on hand: Wonder bread and grape soda, pita bread and grape juice, Ritz crackers and whiskey and even pizza and Coke!

The point of his sermon was that the sincere performance of the ritual is the honest expression of one's faith.

Of course, he was a fairly progressive Christian and fundamentalists would probably scoff at his sermon.

One tidbit from out of this world: When astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landed the Eagle on the Moon, Colonel Aldrin privately performed the Communion ceremony for himself.

3. One of the pastors' wives would bake flatbread.

Didn't much like the barley flatbread, though.
