No occasion offers greater opportunity or a more imposing challenge for communicating the gospel than Holy Communion. The sacrament itself takes one to the very heart of the Christian faith. What a pastor says to congregants who come to share the Eucharist ought to focus on the central realities of Christian truth. And it needs to be said succinctly! Scripture records numerous conversations Jesus held around the dinner table: with Matthew and Zacchaeus; in Simon the Pharisee's home; meals shared with his special friends Mary, Martha, and Lazarus. Well known are his feeding of the multitude with the loaves and fish and his Last Supper with the disciples. For Jesus mealtime was uniquely an occasion for God's truth to be shared and for significant decision-making to take place. This book offers messages that provide themes, ideas, and illustrations appropriate for Holy Communion that pastors and lay persons will find helpful. "Speaking out of the heart of the Christian faith and from the insights of a successful pastor; Robert Stanley has given us a most helpful resource. Here is a conversation starter for adult study groups, a book for quiet reading by any searching Christian, and a model for pastors on how to enrich the communion service." Bishop David I. Lawson "Conversations Over Bread And Wine is an inspiring and amazingly useful guide for everyone who wants to be serious about his or her spiritual journey... This is an excellent book!" Rev. DeWane Zimmerman Robert A. Stanley has over a 40-year period been the pastor of churches throughout California and Arizona. He served for six years as United Methodist Superintendent of the Tucson District. He is a graduate of Candler School of Theology, Emory University, Atlanta, Georgia, from which he received the Master of Divinity degree.
The Bread and the Wine is all about the importance God places on this sacrament because it is so closely connected to Himself, His Son and His death. The blood line is traced from the very moment of creation. It also looks at why it was first offered to Abraham. It identifies the many places the bread and wine are hidden in plain sight in Scripture, and how each time it is identified we are taught something new about the bread and the wine.
Written by black, gay science-fiction writer, professor, and theorist Samuel R. Delany, and drawn by artist/martial arts instructor Mia Wolff, Bread & Wine is a graphic autobiography that flashes back to the unlikely story of how Delany befriend ed Dennis, and how they became an enduring couple―Delany, a professor at Philadelphia’s Temple University, Dennis, an intelligent man living on the streets. For casual readers and fans, Bread & Wine is a moving, sexually charged love story, with visuals informed by Wolff’s professional physical pursuits. Her black-and-white, pen-and-ink work not only expressionistically represents the characters’ “body language” and the bustling New York setting, but is also filled with impish art references and visual puns. The scholarly potential for the book, based on the poem “Bread and Wine” by the German lyric poet Friedrich Holderlin, not only encompasses queer, African-American, and graphic novel studies, but also exploration in the literary and paraliterary academic fields. This edition includes an introduction by Watchmen writer Alan Moore, commentary by the book’s protagonists, Delany and Dennis, and a new interview with Delany and Wolff.
The title of Bread and Wine (Leb I Vino) derives from the old Bulgarian custom of hospitality to strangers; it is considered a great discourtesy if visitors to Bulgarian homes are not offered food and drink, and an even greater discourtesy if this offer is then turned down. “It was a lesson I quickly learned,” says Trefor, “and one that afforded me much pleasure, inspiration, and – I might add – several king-size hangovers!”Fans of short stories and Magical Realist fiction will enjoy this collection of stories, which range from those inspired by the dark and bloody history of the 500-year-long Ottoman occupation, the folk-lore and onto those reflecting modern-day Bulgarian life; an eclectic mix from bawdy comedy to psychological bleakness.
