Pentecost 12 – August 12th

Before I discovered I had strong intolerance’s to dairy and gluten some 7 or so years ago most of my favorite foods involved wheat and either cream or cheese!  I am told we can crave that which is unhealthy for us.

So, when Jesus says he is the bread of life, what am I to make of that?  Am I ducking from Jesus’ gift by having gluten free communion wafers?

Well no, of course not!  Jesus alludes to bread because it was and is a staple, whether you make it from wheat, corn, rice or even almonds.  He is the essential for life: a life of freedom and real joy.
