Seeing Past Our Bellies
I love bread! I love all kinds of bread: soft squishy dinner rolls, dark crusty rye bread, pumpkin bread, tortillas, naan, and sourdough bread, to name just a few. I could make a meal out of bread! Bread is a staple of life in so many cultures. So it seems like it would have been a very positive image when Jesus proclaimed, “I am the bread of life.” And yet as he explored that metaphor, it caused controversy and even led to some people refusing to follow him anymore. This Sunday, we’ll be exploring the image of Jesus as the bread of life so that we might claim it more deeply for ourselves. Hope to see you there.
