One Great Bite
by Ann Thurlow
Here then a little ode to a meal I have not eaten but whose very idea fills me with delight. A church in Murray Harbour is offering a free supper to their neighbours once a month—not because people need the food but because they need each other. It is perfect. All the words: community, communion, communing. All are defined by the simple cheer of a church hall and a bowl of soup. Food makes friends of neighbours. It is a rich and powerful thing, beyond its simple ingredients.
