Sermon; The 12th Sunday after Pentecost: "Well Fed"
Date: August 12, 2018
Liturgical Day: The 12th Sunday after Pentecost; Proper 14B
Jesus understands the appeal of a good meal. When the crowd around him in the wilderness is hungry, he provides for them and then some. This meal, and an extended conversation about the importance of food, speak to how his desire to feed us goes well beyond what fills our stomach. He wants to feed our very souls, with sustenance that lasts forever.
