Sunday Sermon, The Rev. Matthew A. Welsch: “The Bread of Life”

“I am the bread of life.” “The body of Christ, the bread of heaven.” Time and again we encounter bread used as a metaphor for the incarnation, and in today’s sermon Father Matt reflects on the "miracle" that is bread making and why it is central in understanding who Jesus is. “Like a well-tended sourdough starter, God’s grace is indefinite. Or like baking bread in the midst of the the trauma and uncertainty of the pandemic, Christ’s incarnation brings order out of chaos.” The readings are 2 Samuel 11:26-12:13a; Psalm 51:1-13; Ephesians 4:1–16; and John 6:24-35.
