Media @ New Hope CalgaryBread has a social and emotional significance beyond its importance in nutrition; it plays essential roles in religious rituals and secular culture. Its prominence in daily life is reflected in language, where it appears in proverbs, colloquial expressions, in prayer and even in the etymology of words.

Here with a Loaf of Bread beneath the Bough,
A Flask of Wine, a Book of Verse - and Thou
Beside me singing in the Wilderness -
And Wilderness is Paradise enow.
-Omar Khayyam, middle ages mathematician and poet

Is not the bread that we break a participation in the body of Christ? Because there is one loaf, we, who are many, are one body, for we all share the one loaf.

Give us this day our daily bread.

I'm telling you the most solemn and sober truth now: Whoever believes in me has real life, eternal life. I am the Bread of Life. Your ancestors ate the manna bread in the desert and died. But now here is Bread that truly comes down out of heaven. Anyone eating this Bread will not die, ever. I am the Bread living Bread! who came down out of heaven. Anyone who eats this Bread will live and forever! The Bread that I present to the world so that it can eat and live is myself, this flesh-and-blood self.
-Jesus, John 6:47-51, MSG
