A Grand Dinner Party: God's Movable Feast

John 6:35,41-51

11th Sunday after Pentecost - Year B

August 09, 2015

The Rev. Sarah Fisher (TEC)

 

We stood in Mrs. Trieschmann's kitchen. Martha was in charge of seasoning the chicken. I was on green bean duty. It was the spring of our junior year of high school, and we decided to throw a dinner party. All of our friends were invited and we were giddy with anticipation. The table was set with Mrs. Trieschmann's finest china and delicate crystal. Flowers from the yard, in beautiful Georgia bloom, had been arranged; and we had even employed Martha's younger sister, Catherine, to be our server for the night. All that remained was the guests' arrival and the plating of the meal. Guiding us along the way, helping us and teaching us as we went, was Martha's mom, Mrs. Trieschmann, who was and forever will be in my mind a cross between Martha Stewart and Donna Reed. Mrs. Trieschmann helped us, not hovering, but rather offering guidance and direction when we needed it, making space for us to learn and giving us a map for how to make this meal something other than every day, how to make it extraordinary.

You're Not Yourself When You're Hungry

Exodus 16:2-4, 9-15

10th Sunday after Pentecost - Year B

August 02, 2015

The Rev. Dr. Quincy Brown (UMC)

Patrick wasn't his usual self. From the moment he walked into the room, I could tell something was off. He didn't want to read, he wasn't interested in drawing, he didn't care about playing checkers. He wasn't his usual chipper and curious self. Instead he acted more like the ogre Shrek. He was irritable, grumpy and complained that nobody cared about him. Between his complaints, I could hear a low groan from deep within his stomach, and I knew that he hadn't had breakfast. He told me that he hadn't had a good breakfast since his grandmother died a couple of weeks ago.
