Sermon: Enough Right Here

Sunday, August 6, 2017

There are two passages from the lectionary that lead us to think about God’s abundance: Isaiah 55 that invites us to come buy wine and milk without money and without price, and Matthew 14 that describes Jesus’ feeding the 5,000. In the latter text, when Jesus asks the disciples to feed the multitudes they say, “We have nothing here but five loaves and two fish.” Isn’t that the way it seems: all we see is a few fish; how is that supposed to address the need? Wendell Berry says, “Sight blinds us.” That’s a word worth unpacking. Join us Sunday, as we seek to look with our other eyes.
