Sharing a meal

When Buddhists and Christians come together, as we often do, we should share a meal in mindfulness, a deep communion between the two. To share a piece of bread and a bowl of rice, mindfully in togetherness. So that we can be aware that every morsel is a gift from the universe, that Divine creation we share.

Let us live deeply. Let us not distract ourselves from the food, even when listening to chants or reciting scripture. Buddha and the Saints showed us the way. When we're mindful, we can find the path, live in the present, and know the Holy Spirit. On that, we can all meditate.
