Actions speak louder than words…

In the gospel for this coming Sunday, we see Jesus feeding the five thousand with just a few loaves of bread and a few fish. He did this, not because they demanded it, or because someone told him to, but simply because they were there. And when all had eaten and were satisfied, there were twelve baskets of leftovers. This is God’s abundant hospitality in action, and Jesus’ message to us, over and over, remains: come, and be fed – then go and do likewise.

Read it all (and more) here: John 6:1-21

A Heads Up:
We regularly include postings from “Grow Christians” in our weekly eblast. Many of them are geared toward children and families, but they also include some that are relevant and helpful to adults. This past week or so they have included several very good postings for a variety of ages and situations. I hope you will check them out!
