Morning Worship and Barbeque 10:30 a.m.
Lectionary Readings: Psalm 130; John 6: 35, 41-51
Text: “I am the living bread that came down from heaven.” John 6:51
Sermon: “Bread and Circuses”
Tease: We take a final look at John’s account of Jesus Feeding the Five Thousand. Once again, we will be reminded that Jesus is the “Bread of Life,” a humble metaphor that challenges us to consider not the things that we want … but the things that we truly need. Sadly, the crowd is not interested in Jesus’ “heavenly” sustenance. Like many today, they are too easily enticed with promises of bread and circuses.
