Jesus is the Bread of Life, part 2

August 12

We will begin where we ended last Sunday, with Jesus declaring that he is the bread of life. After ruminating on this great truth for a week, are we ready to share in the Body of Christ at his table? His original hearers were not - the Gospel tells us they grumbled.

Jesus is the Bread of Life, part 1

August 5

In the Gospel of John we see a series of signs from Jesus, and then we hear Jesus speak about those signs on a deeper level than what many could comprehend. Jesus fed 5000.

Today's Old Testament lesson is about David and Goliath. But we look at it through the lens of Paul's letter to the Corinthians in which he mentions "weapons of righteousness." The phrase, "waging peace" comes to mind. If we are not given "five smooth stones" and a slingshot, what "weapon" might we best use to the glory of God today?
