Scripture Reading: Feeding the Five Thousand
Taking 5 loves and two fish, Jesus looked up to heaven and said a blessing. Then he broke the loaves and gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the crowds. And they all ate and were satisfied.
Rev. Burd discusses why this scripture was important for the early Christians and why it’s important to us today. The story reminds us of just what God can do when we give what we have. God, who first loved us, demands we open our arms and hearts to others. As Christians, we will embrace a challenge, bringing forward what we have, no matter how little, and God will do the rest.
