something liminal

A couple of thoughts on the Eucharist/Communion

Christians use many different metaphors for the change we perceive in ourselves and others as we grow in Christ and become more like him and learn to love the way he loved. The spirit of God "puts us on like a glove." We are new creations. We reflect the image of God more and more clearly. It's like a blood transfusion, or getting a Trill symbiote (you can thank my teenage self for that image), or turning from caterpillar to butterfly.
