Kelly Hough Rogers: Abundance Born Out of Scarcity

John 6:1-21

10th Sunday after Pentecost - Year B

Water is turned into wine. Lame people walk. Blind people see. Demons disappear. In the 6th chapter of John, we encounter not one, but two miracle stories. First, Jesus feeds the 5,000 with five loaves of bread and two fish; then he walks across the Sea of Galilee.
