Give Us This Day Our Daily Bread

The phone call was not good news. It concerned a relative who had been in a grain elevator accident.

The food we eat, most of it, involves some risks to the workers who cultivate, harvest, process or handle it. Whether it is an accident with a piece of machinery, exposure to toxic chemicals, inherently dangerous work (i.e., commercial fishing), or just being worn down from years of toil; somebody is always putting their life on the line so that we can eat better than the kings of old.

Perhaps this may be a compelling reason for saying grace at dinner.

The funeral is Saturday.
