As the Last Supper is celebrated tonight around the world, many different types of bread will be broken in many different families and communities. The Lord's Prayer teaches us to pray for our daily bread. As Luther interpreted this petition., bread meant the "needs of our body and life on earth". Food, water, health, shelter, community, education, etc. are all part of what we are praying for when we say "our daily bread". They are all things recognized today as basic human rights.
A neighborhood bakery is an important part of the culture here in Bogota. Based on what kind of breads are available we can tell from what region of Colombia the baker is from.
