Our attitudes, emotions, thoughts, beliefs, words and actions emerge directly from what we receive into our lives – i.e. what we consume. Garbage in = garbage out. In John 6 Jesus makes this explicit through metaphor: “Unless you eat my flesh and drink my blood you have no part of me.” Jesus is the source and measure of what nourishes us as his followers. How do we live this strange metaphor that even confused and offended his original hearers?
