Together in Faith: “This is the bread that came down from heaven.” John 6:58
Jesus asks his listeners to see beyond the obvious, to see not just earthly bread but heavenly as well. So rather than see the stranger, we can see our brother and sister. Rather than see the needy, we can see those with less opportunity than us. Or, rather than not see at all, we can open our eyes and ears to those whom we can assist.
Bishop's Committee Parishioner Liaison: Every week there is an assigned member of the Bishop's Committee to serve as a Parishioner Liaison. We encourage parishioners to seek out this assigned member whenever there is a suggestion, question or concern. The liaisons will bring all comments to the monthly meeting of the Bishop's Committee to be addressed as appropriate. This week’s Parishioner Liaison is Charles Vaughn.
