WELCOME! 19th August 2018 Twelfth Sunday after Trinity

WELCOME TO EVERYONE!
Sunday 19th August 2018
Twelfth Sunday after Trinity
Thought for the week from Canon Andrew
Promises must always hold out a prospect of something above and beyond the ordinary and preferably unique. Otherwise the strand of joyful hope that marks a promise is missing.  When Jesus promised to give us his Body and Blood, the hearers were incredulous as we read in today’s Gospel. Since they could not see how it could happen. They restricted the power of God to their own limited understanding of reality. The temptation is to retreat into our own world and accept only what we understand. The promise is that all who are nourished by the bread of life will live for ever. To risk all for this promise is the vocation of every follower of Jesus.
