Sermons from “Uptown Service”
Is Jesus’ call to “Eat my flesh…and drink my blood” in John 6:51-58 literal or figurative? Deacon Wheatley looks at how Jesus calls us beyond belief to a taste of living bread, a true feast in which Jesus – flesh and blood, God and man – feeds us true food and drink to eternal life.
In this sermon based on John 6:35, 41-51, Father Bob considers two pillars of the spiritual life: the Sacrament of the altar and God’s revelation. He reminds us that Jesus did not come primarily to meet our earthly needs but to lead us to eternal life.
Deacon Paul investigates the relationship between the Israelites’ response to God’s giving Manna in Ex 16 and the crowd’s response to Jesus in Jn 6:24-35. We often respond to God’s mysterious ways of meeting our needs with the same question the Israelites asked of the Manna, “What is it?” Jesus answers this question with a resounding “I AM”: “I am the bread of life.”
