Breadtime Stories?

On a lighter note...does anyone have a good bread recipe for a small-group Communion service? I have the Luther Seminary recipe in my list o' links, but I'm collecting other recipes. I am looking for something evocatively chewy and "wheaty," but not too crumbly. (I'm remembering back to my college days, when our church janitor had a real crisis of conscience over vacuuming up Christ's body after a particularly messy folk service using homemade bread.) I have a recipe for homemade pita, but I'm afraid that my electric oven won't generate the necessary heat. Thanks, anyone, for any help.

I'm glad you found the Luther Sem recipe. It's a good one, fairly moist, though I would not call it crumbless. I have served it during chapel there, and it does break off in to nice marble-sized pieces that stay intact when placed into the communicant's hand.

I think that is the recipe we use at our church for our Maundy Thursday Eucharist, which we celebrate in the context of a real meal. It's good just to eat.:-)

I think I am going to try the pita...even if they don't "puff," they should still be edible and evocative looking.
