Our Bread

The table fellowship of Christians implies obligation. It is our daily bread that we eat, not my own. We share our bread. Thus we are firmly bound to one another not only in the Spirit but in our whole physical being. The one bread that is given to our fellowship links us together in a firm covenant. Now none dare go hungry as long as another has bread, and he who breaks this fellowship of the physical life also breaks the fellowship of the Spirit. “Deal thy bread to the hungry” (Isa. 58:7).

—Bonhoeffer
