Rising Bread — Circuit Worship on Jenny's Field on 14th August 2016

'I am the bread of life'

We gathered in warm weather and worshipped in God's space infused with the smell of baking bread. We celebrated God's love and heard of that love which provided food for the hungry Israelites in the wilderness.

We remembered that Jesus is the bread of life — and thought about what that means where we are today. We enacted the Feeding of the Five Thousand and talked about where living bread is rising today where we are, or where we can shed the warmth and energy to nurture and inspire, to feed and be fed as Jesus's disciples in our community.

We saw balloons and bubbles rise, filled with our breath, like the breath of life which fills us and the whole world; like the yeast working in making bread rise and grow. We gave our offerings for the Barnsley Food Bank recognising in thankfulness all we have while being mindful of those who are often without.

We sang, laughed, prayed and shared fellowship before we broke and shared out the freshly baked bread, along with fresh water, together in a Love Feast as John Wesley had encouraged the early Methodists to do.

Our fellowship continued as we sat down for our picnics. We had been together before God acknowledging the amazing gift of the Holy Spirit in helping us all to rise to be who God wants us to be, more than we might ever have imagined.
