Revolution Church in Minneapolis served its congregants this rainbow-colored communion bread during services on Sunday to celebrate Minnesota legalizing marriage equality.
From the New York Daily News: Head pastor Rev. Jay Bakker thought the bread - and the state’s embrace of gay rights - tasted “kind of sweet.” “So many people have been hurt by the church and by Christianity,” Bakker told the News. “But this was a beautiful moment.”
A good life is still a life. It must involve a full share of suffering, loneliness, disappointment and coming to terms with one’s own mortality and the deaths of those one loves. To live a life that is good - as a life - involves all this.
