“I need the Eucharist because I need to begin each week with open hands.
I need the Eucharist because I need to practice letting go and letting in.
I need the Eucharist because I need to quit keeping score…
It’s a scary thing to open your hands. It’s a scary thing to receive, to say yes.
I resist it every time.
But somehow, whether it sneaks in through a piece of bread, a sip of wine, or a hatching bud, grace always, eventually gets through. And finally, at long last, I exhale my thanksgiving.”
