Text: John 6:35, 41-51
Very truly, I tell you, whoever believes has eternal life. I am the bread of life. Your ancestors ate the manna in the wilderness, and they died. This is the bread that comes down from heaven, so that one may eat of it and not die.
This passage, like last week’s, invites the question about how we feed ourselves. What did you eat yesterday, today? How nourishing was it? How satisfying?
Where did you eat? In your car? At a fast food place? With friends? Family? Anonymous others? Alone?
How long did you spend enjoying (or not) your food?
What might we be overlooking or masking or hiding by eating the way we do?
What sweetness do we crave in our life? What salt? What yeast?
What bread are we really seeking?
