Jesus says, “I am the bread of life.” How much more fragrant, intoxicating and life-giving Jesus promises to be for us. In worship we pause, and we get more than just a whiff of this life-giving bread. Jesus is broken, remembered and lived out. Our bellies are filled, and we are sent out. Lord, may we extend the Bread of Life to others.
O God of love and peace, empower our voices to be vulnerable. Open our stubborn hearts to listen to those who struggle to have a voice for themselves. Fill us with your Spirit to discern when to concede and when to insist. Amen. — MP
