Sermon
"Getting to Know You"

It’s easy to find fault with the people of Israel in the wilderness – as a bunch of complainers. And the crowd that scampered into boats and headed across the lake looking for Jesus? It sure seems as if they just didn’t “get it” in their conversation with Jesus about “the bread that endures.” But is there more to these stories in Exodus and John than we realize? And more to get to know about the people who populate them? And us?
