Communion as “Bread From Heaven”

The Christian practice of communion is a reminder of why Jesus is important and how his life affects us. To see the full depth of it, you have to consider pre-Christian religion.

Authorization in GraphQL

A GraphQL system works differently from a “traditional” RESTful JSON API. Instead of authenticating during controller actions, you can authenticate users with “query context.”

Happy Refactoring by Keeping ApplicationController to a Minimum

Extending ActionController::Base once, in ApplicationController, is a great Ruby on Rails practice. However, if ApplicationController is your only abstract controller, it’s likely to become a maintenance challenge. To avoid this, you should extend ApplicationController as needed and move as much code as possible into its subclasses.
