Dear St. Stephen’s Family,
“All ate and were filled!” as our bulletin cover states this Sunday. It reflects one of our most cherished stories in the Bible of Jesus feeding 5000 men, besides women and children. These are days of relative scarcity in our lives, especially when it comes to gathering in person with others in our family and community – so it is very important to listen this Sunday and believe in God’s Word of welcome, abundance and enough for all regardless of any circumstance. All of the readings remind of us these central aspects of God’s will for us and all creation.
