"God's Abundance" - 9th Sunday After Pentecost - July 25, 2021

Updated: Jul 26, 2021



Good morning.


God’s abundance!

It is brought to our attention in all 4 scripture readings of today’s lectionary.


  • Second Kings – 20 loaves of barley & some fresh ears of grain fed 100.

  • Psalm 145 – (17) The psalmist tells God, “You open wide your hand and satisfy the needs of every living creature.”

  • Ephesians – Paul prays that all the saints may know the love of Christ so that “you may be filled with all the fullness of God.”

  • And the Gospel according to John – 5 thousand sitting upon “a great deal of grass”, fed by 5 barley loaves & 2 fish.


God’s abundance.


As a church community, St. Andrew’s is blessed with an abundance of Love. It is evident this morning. It has been evident to me since I first came years ago. We acknowledge each other. We greet each other. We pray for each other. We hug, we chat, we check in. It is such a fabric of this church… I hope we never lose that.


As a church community, St. Andrew’s is blessed with an abundance of food. Every week we feed each other at our Sunday breakfast. We feed anyone and everyone who comes through the door, even if we don’t know them. We don’t care if they have money or not. We don’t care if they come to the church service or not. God has given us an abundance of food, and we share it with our community.
