Didache for 12B

From the earliest surviving records of the liturgy of the early Christian church, the Didache, 


"We thank Thee, our Father, for the life and knowledge which Thou madest known to us through Jesus Thy Servant; to Thee be the glory for ever. Even as this broken bread was scattered over the hills, and was gathered together and became one, so let Thy Church be gathered together from the ends of the earth into Thy kingdom; for Thine is the glory and the power through Jesus Christ for ever..."


Which leads me to thinking


of Hansel and Gretel as a salvation narrative...


Of course, that bit didn't make the cut for tomorrow's sermon.
