Five Loaves, Two Fish, and Twelve Disciples were enough to allow Jesus to feed 5000 (plus women and children!) with plenty left over. Can you imagine feeding five thousand people? Can you imagine a world with enough for everyone to eat?
Many churches are providing for their neighbors with pantries and meals. Five Loaves, Two Fish, Twelve Volunteers: Growing Relational Food Ministries is about how to feed not only our bodies, but also our hearts and our souls. It is about getting to know the people who come to eat, and in knowing, how to make space for everyone to belong. Five Loaves is about creating church.
Look for Five Loaves at Upper Room Books in March of 2020. I am also available for workshops for your congregation or the volunteers in your food ministry.
