Finding the "right" communion bread

Baker: "May I help you?"

Me: "Yes, do you sell gluten free, non-sliced, round loaf of bread that easy to break?"

Baker: "Huh?"

Me: "Um, yeah, I am a preacher and I need communion bread for tomorrow, and it has to be gluten free?"

Baker: "Well we sell commercial gluten free, but it is pre-sliced. It needs to be gluten free?"

Me: "Because of allergies we are now only using gluten free bread. [pause, chin scratch] What if gluten is what makes it Christ's body though?"

Baker [confused and not amused]: "Here is some sourdough but its got gluten and it's pretty tough to break."

Me: "Yeah, they warned us not to use sourdough in seminary."

Baker: "Really? Well, what about this one?"

Me: "Hmmm, while raisin bread would simplify the process, I don't think that will work either. Thanks, I guess I will go with the gluten rich Hearty Italian. See you next month."

Yeah, we offer some gluten free wafers, but a whole gluten free loaf... good luck.
