Call to Worship (John 6:35)
Jesus said, “I am the bread of life.”
We are hungry for the bread of heaven.
Jesus said, “The bread of God gives life to the world.”
We are hungry for eternal life.
Jesus said, “I am the bread of life.
Whoever comes to me will never be hungry,
and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.”
We are here to become what we already are: the body of Christ, food for a hungry world.
God of forgiveness and new beginnings,
you feed our hearts with compassion,
and nourish our souls with the bread of heaven.
As Jesus fed the hungry crowds,
knowing that they needed both physical bread
and the bread of heaven,
fill us with your generous spirit
and make us one with Christ. Amen.
