We return to a familiar passage, the feeding of the 5000, to look at it from a different perspective.
We’ll spend some time today contemplating what it means to think about scarcity and abundance in the midst of a pandemic. How does COVID-19 affect our hopes and dreams, our vision and planning for ministry in 2021? Will we have enough? As individuals? As a congregation? What is God’s call in this unique time and will we be able to answer it?
On the heels of the Feast Day of St. Francis, we will also be celebrating a Blessing of the Animals. Later in the service, there will be a special blessing for our beloved critters along with another chance to see all of their faces together!
Scripture passages: Mark 6:34-43
