Now Available: Gluten-Free Sacrament

Each Sabbath day, Christians around the world take the Sacrament/Communion.
This act reminds believers of the Savior's sacrifice for them and is a renewal of promises made.*

In my church (the LDS/Mormon Church), the Sacrament consists of bread and water.
Recently I joined a new congregation, and I was somewhat surprised to see this in the announcements:
Do you see that? Gluten-free sacrament is available! How cool is that?!

Not sure why I'd never thought of it, but surely there are some who need this and I'm glad the leadership here makes it available so that those people can fully participate in this important weekly ordinance.

  1. okay, i think that is ridiculous! one small morsel of bread is not going to kill someone with gluten allergies. is someone on an atkins diet going to request a small piece of beef in lieu of bread? where do you draw the line?
