Many Nigerians have been chatting on social media since the church used leavened bread for their Holy Communion.
Holy Communion or Lord’s Supper, in Christianity, a ritual commemoration of Jesus’ Last Supper with his disciples, in which (according to tradition) he gave them bread with the words, “This is my body,” and wine with the words, “This is my blood.”
Taking to the micro blogging site, Twitter, a young Nigerian man, @jones ayuwo, posted pictures of what he had received during the recent Holy Communion service in his local church.
According to him, the village church brought the service to another degree, as they served local leavened bread popularly known as ‘Agee bread.’ He wrote the following:
“Holy Communion hits different in village church”
See some reactions below:
@holardamolar: But wait, Na only one person own be that or one you chop your own and pass the rest?
@justfrankleen: I thought “holy communion” was a part of Christ’s body and his blood?
If you eat this quantity,what will remain in his body
@iam_bakedboi: but bro you know this is wrong. Partaking in Holy Communion is sacred and not to be brought on social media for laughs, likes and retweets. also it doesnt matter the size or improvisation of what was used as the communion, it is the faith behind it.
