We need to move the non-meal elements out of the Liturgy of the Eucharist and reduce the total number of words -- that liturgy is already over.
We need to be able to clearly see the simple structure of taking, giving thanks, sharing, and consuming the bread and wine which Jesus has made His body and blood. This should be the culmination of the service. After all have eaten, no more words except the sending/mission to go and live the good news that God is among us and all are our neighbors.
Let us bake the bread as people are arriving and can smell it, then wrap it in plastic or foil or cloth and bring it through the congregation that way before putting it on its ceremonial plate, certainly not hidden in a covered dish or bowl.
Let the communion take the time it takes as someone holds the plate and a communion ministers tear off one piece for each person. This is not the time for efficiency but for a communal experience.
Let us bring up the bottle of wine from the shop and pour that into the communal cup without taking it out of the ordinary first by placing it in some special church vessel.
Is there any message we have missed in Jesus telling us to share a cup, not a jug? Can we form a real, interpersonal, supportive community if we are too many for all to get a sip from the contents of one cup?
