Broken Bread means more than just sharing a meal. The “breaking of bread” has been a tradition used to share intimacy among family and treasured friends. It also has created new alliances, friendships, or the acceptance of travelers from afar. This act has been used to heal old wounds, open new doors and even end wars.
Derrick’s version of breaking bread may mean sharing one another’s burdens or challenges, imparting spiritual insight, comforting a friend in need or all of the above. Derrick has a way of communicating as if he were sitting right in front of you sharing his back story and its inspiration for his spiritual insight of the world around us. He shares his experiences through the style of poetic verse that is known as “Spoken Word”. The spoken word style makes for a personal connection very much needed in our current “technologically based” society.
