Communion...huh, what da heck?

lucy was mesmerized by the little girl behind us in church eating a snack.  when she asked emily if she could eat something, emily told her, "no, we don't eat in church."  sure enough, 20 minutes later as we walked back from Communion, emily was drilled with questions - "what was that?  are you eating?  can i have some?"  so of course emily quickly explained the transubstantiation and the true nature of the Eucharist and the Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Jesus within the blessed unleavened bread following consecration.  the little girl behind us starting crying....maybe she will think twice about being so disrespectful next time.
