We are What We Eat

Lectionary Reflection for the 12th Sunday after Pentecost, Year B, August 19, 2012

If it’s true that we are what we eat, we who claim to be Christ’s disciples better whet our appetites and feast on Jesus. Why? So that the divine presence and promise infuses our very pores like garlic, and so that we can share this everlasting meal with others.

Potlucks, Comfort Food, and Faith

Third Sunday of Easter Lectionary Reflection, April 22, 2012
Comfort food and soul food calm our fears and show our love. When we come to Christ’s table, we receive the ultimate in comfort and soul food, nourishment that equips and strengthens us for mission and ministry as witnesses to the world. (Photo by UUCJ used under Creative Commons License. Thanks!)
