August 2nd: Proper 13, the Ninth Sunday after Pentecost
In God’s reign, everyone has enough, and God hears the prayer to “Give us today our daily bread.” From the midst of his grief, Jesus makes sure the crowds whose cheers will soon enough turn to jeers have enough. In his compassion Jesus directs his true followers to care for those around him. Sending them away is practical. Feeding them is God’s reign made manifest.
