The trash is gone! Last week I talked about how a youth group from MN had spent a week at Gloria Dei doing service work. They got a ton of things done and the property looks great. The only problem is that they lift a lot of trash. It was more trash that could fit in the dumpster. The trash was overflowing. We had to pay extra to get it removed.
Is the trash piling up in your life. Sometimes it’s overwhelming how many things pile up in our lives like stress, conflict, relationship issues, mistakes, pain and the list goes on.
This week Jesus reminds us in our scripture reading that he is the LIVING BREAD. When we gather for Holy Communion we hear the words “for you.” Jesus gives us live, forgiveness and salvation in this holy meal. It is a free gift. We don’t have to “empty our trash” before we come to Jesus. He wants to empty it for us through his life, death and resurrection.
