It’s hard trying to come up with an image for ‘equality’ as there are so many different kinds of inequalities and different combinations of intersectionality. But one of the oldest, and perhaps most universal, is that of people eating together. Perhaps then it’s no surprise that holy communion – the sharing of bread and wine – is one of the central sacraments of Christianity and a sign through which the church shows its shared heritage.
The inequality I have studied most and wrote about most prolifically is undoubtedly gender inequality. But every now and then you’ll find me writing on other divisions too.
