Take This Bread, A radical conversion, by Sara Miles
The story of an unexpected and terribly inconvenient Christian conversion, told by a very unlikely convert, Take This Bread is not only a spiritual memoir but a call to action. Raised as an atheist, Sara Miles lived an enthusiastically secular life as a restaurant cook and writer. Then one morning, for no earthly reason, she wandered into a church. She ate a piece of bread, took a sip of wine, and found herself radically transformed, embracing a faith she'd scorned and which would lead to feeding others in a way that she'd never imagined. Sara started a food pantry giving away literally tons of food from around the same altar where she'd first received the body of Christ, and providing hundreds of hungry families with free groceries each week. Take This Bread is rich with real-life Dickensian characters-church ladies, millionaires, schizophrenics, bishops, and gangsters - all blown into Miles' life by the relentless force of her new-found calling. Here, in this beautiful, passionate book, is Christ's living communion. Sara Miles is one of today’s most inspiring and powerful Christian writers and speakers and is in constant demand as a keynote speaker and workshop leader at denominational clergy assemblies, conferences, seminaries, churches, and festivals. She is the founder and director of The Food Pantry, and serves as Director of Ministry at St Gregory of Nyssa Episcopal Church, San Francisco.
