Wednesday's Word - July 28, 2021
A Little Goes A Long Way
I share a poem titled "I Am The Bread Of Life," by Malcolm Guite inspired by this week's scripture passage from the Gospel of John 6:35.
"Jesus said to them, ‘I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never be hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.'"
Where to get bread? An ever-pressing question
That trembles on the lips of anxious mothers,
Bread for their families, bread for all these others;
A whole world on the margin of exhaustion.
And where that hunger has been satisfied
Where to get bread? The question still returns
In our abundance something starves and yearns
We crave fulfillment, crave and are denied.
And then comes One who speaks into our needs
Who opens out the secret hopes we cherish
Whose presence calls our hidden hearts to flourish
Whose words unfold in us like living seeds
Come to me, broken, hungry, incomplete,
I Am the Bread of Life, break Me and eat.
We will gather this Sunday for Morning Worship and Communion calling upon the gifts from God to remember, celebrate, and give thanks.
