Many Hands, One Heart, Sacred Love for All
Sunday August 1, 2021 at 10:30 am
Tenth Sunday after Pentecost
Come to the Manor, the table is ready, “Bread of Life”
We are the bread. We have been making bread, sour dough, bagels, pesto bread.I remember bagels in Kensington market, Perugina’s the Italian Bakery, bread in Harrington Harbour, Quebecois bread and maple butter.
My first Communion in confirmation.
We are the bread, then for the people of the Hebrews. There came a traveler, children, Israel marching from Egypt. Children wandering in the wilderness. Liberation, liberation, and liberation. Where, when, how, building relationships that sustain civilization, economics. Children finding manna, family nurture. New kids on the block. Wealth, affection, quarrel, dispute, listen, resolve.
Children finding identity in the promised land.
Eat of the abundant fare. Listen to the law that brings foundation, guidance. Find the tribes, the creator, source of the land, Hebrews planting. People confronting neighbours, warriors, young, elder, order inside and outside.
Confront the other, prisoner, confession, recoliation. God’s work, ministry, equip to serve, make the kingdom, praise God.
Find the sacred time, bread given from heaven. Find troubles, witness miracles, feeding many, walking on water. The logos, the word of God.
Find the words, “I am the bread of life.” The habitat for humanity. A home for all, sanctuary for the people, the power of love, knowledge, human need, little becomes much, work for humanity.
Incarnation, God with us, NOW!

From the United Church of Canada:
"After we grieve, we must educate ourselves and our churches to learn about our role in colonization, the history and legacy of residential schools (Call to Action #59) in order to begin to redress the legacy of residential schools and advance the process of Canadian reconciliations."
Please read this message from the United Church of Canada. Included are links for many resources including the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s 94 Calls to Action as well as recommendations for books, videos, and websites.
