For the past three weeks, we have been in St. John’s Gospel listening to Jesus describe himself as the bread of life. And we get the same in today’s lesson (John 6:51-58). Jesus breaks all this bread stuff down- unless you eat my flesh and drink my blood, you will not have life within you. Now before we make a formal endorsement of cannibalism, let’s see what Jesus is really saying. Jesus invites us into relationship with him. Relationship with God. I suppose the question then is, do we know this Jesus? See you Sunday, Father Seth+
