Broken Bodies Coming to Believe


Based on John 6:56-69, this sermon is the last in my 'Bread of Life' series as I follow the Revised Common Lectionary.  In it, I focus on the experience of living in the transitional times of life.  Faced with change, we need to say goodbye to the past and be open to the future.  Saying goodbye to past understandings of God proved to be too difficult for the majority of the disciples that followed Jesus.  They couldn't imagine a God that would enter human brokenness and offer his body.  Peter, proclaims that Jesus has the words of eternal life.  Around the word of life, we come to believe and trust that God is with us, no matter what we face.
