Paleo Diet Day 25: a wheat-free communion

Friday, December 07, 2012

OK, let's explain that title (but if you're reading it did work as a hook, yes?) emoticon

We do "house church" in our family on Friday nights. Before we started my daughter was making a dessert with very dark (85%) cacao. I was having a glass of my sulfite-free wine. I started the conversation by stating that what we were having was certainly tastier and more appealing than the mass-produced, tasteless, cardboard-like communion wafers some of you might be familiar with. Even though I can't find "chocolate" in the New Testament (or the Bible as a whole for that matter) I'm convinced Jesus would bless the combination. So we made it our wheat-free, chocolaty communion, half-tongue in cheek, but also half seriously, as one of the things communion does is to recall Jesus to our hearts and minds, which happened, and to bring the community together, which it did. In any case it was a blessing and got us all into a very open mindset for a great discussion about where God may be leading my daughter, and prayer and very initial steps to support this.

I ran two miles on the treadmill today, lunched on ham and turkey breast with sprouts and carrots, snacked on coffee, nuts, and dates, and had a dinner of chicken breast, green beans, and the above wine and chocolate. Not bad!
