Should Communion Bread Be Unleavened?

Q. Thank you for your articles. I appreciate them very much.  There is something I would like your opinion on. The church I attend celibrates communion about every two weeks.What I find disturbing is they use normal leavened bread. Doesn’t this indicate a sinful body of Christ which is terrible? Is not this a continuation or fulfillment of Passover and as set up by Christ shouldn’t we at least be using unleavened bread?  Please correct me if I am wrong.

A. I believe that in keeping with the model of the bread representing the Lord’s body, unleavened bread is preferable.  It’s not that hard to find.  For example saltine crackers, tortillas, and Matzoh bread are all unleavened and can be found in most supermarkets.
