Pentecost 11B “Eat This, Not That” August 5, 2018
Many of us have favorite restaurants – ‘go to’ places for special occasions. Maybe even a favorite meal or a particular food that we enjoy… I have to admit, I’m a creature of habit. Some people remember vacations – or occasions – by meals they’ve eaten… Some even post pictures on Facebook or social media… Just to be clear, I’m not one of those people.
Our lessons this morning talk about food…and show us the ways that God provides nourishment for his people. God cares for his people in the wilderness and satisfies their hunger, both day and night. God provides each of us gifts that strengthen us as individuals, and as a community of believers. These gifts reveal our unique selves, that together make us a rich and diverse church, that together make us this Family of Faith. God is constantly providing for us – calling us to be the servant Body of Christ in this time and place – in this church and this community.
