Musings of a Poser - as defined by Brennan Manning - and now fully embracing my status as a ragamuffin dependent on the Grace of God and nothing else.

I have never understood the devotion some people have to the plasticized wafers that pass as communion bread in so many churches. There are times, such as large General Assembly-type gatherings where it makes sense. But for the typical church of less than 100 congregants, why on earth would you use the chiclet-type bread instead of baking a real loaf of unleavened bread and cutting it up?
I'm a Renaissance Man wannabee - I keep getting into weird stuff like trebuchet construction, potato mortars (really cool), bat house construction and strange things like that. I'm over 40, self-employed and the pastor of the Hobart Church of the Nazarene. I married way up, and have two wonderful daughters who continue to amaze me.
