    • Children’s Voices Things real children have said
    • What they say……
      • … .where children do not share the bread and wine.
      • ‘ It’s not fair I can’t have some bread and wine. I love Jesus just as much as anyone else.’
      • ‘ Why does the vicar say we are one body because we share one bread, when I don’t get any?’
      • ‘ I think if I had been in that room with Jesus and the disciples, and I was hungry, Jesus would have given me something to eat and drink the same as the others.’
      • ‘ There are lots of things I don’t understand yet. But my family still feed me.’
    • And what they say….
      • … ..if they do share bread and wine.
    • Q ‘Why do you think Jesus wants us to share bread and wine?’
