Communion crunch

At the church I go to, we sometimes take communion as a congregation. Each person is given a little piece of bread and a tiny cup of grape juice. The bread is a little bitty crunchy square cracker that tastes kind of like a wheat thin. After the pastor blesses the bread, everyone eats the cracker at the same time. The funny thing is that when it's really quiet and I don't chew my cracker right then, I can hear the resounding crunch of every person in the room biting down on and chewing their cracker at the same time.
