An unholy row's broken out over a convenient new way of fitting a spot of
communion into people's busy lives. A Chicago company has started marketing
airline-style pre-packed holy communion meals and already distributes them
to more than 1000 churches across the USA.
Pleased-as-punch pastor Ray Cotton from Oregon gives the product the holy
seal of approval in the story but United Methodist Church representative
Barbara Bate says: "It encourages an isolated religious experience" which
even so still sounds better than what you get at your average burger joint.
[From a musician's viewpoint, the question is whether the tips will be better
from people getting the Communion or from those getting the Lunch Special.
