The lectionary is John 6: 1-15, the Feeding of the Five Thousand. In John’s gospel Jesus, not the apostles as in the other gospels, does the feeding, hands out the pieces of bread and fish. No intermediaries necessary in this one. I like that. Here we have the Living Christ showing us how to do our part, our part, not all the parts. We all have our gifts, be it in our church community or in other areas of our life. Do what we can and receive the rest from others. That way others can do the same. Everyone giving and receiving.
