Jesus is the Bread of Life

The church color for this Sunday is still green - for many, many weeks!

Here are the readings:
Here's what we're wondering about: some words from the 6th chapter of John
(learn about manna - the "what is it" - in the appointed readings)

(Jesus, teaching in the synagogue in Capernaum, said)

For the bread of God is the bread that comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.”

Sir,” they said, “always give us this bread.”

Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.

Very truly I tell you, the one who believes has eternal life. I am the bread of life. Your ancestors ate the manna in the wilderness, yet they died. But here is the bread that comes down from heaven, which anyone may eat and not die. I am the living bread that came down from heaven. Whoever eats this bread will live forever.”

I wonder what Jesus means?
What do you know about bread?
What is it like to be hungry and thirsty?
What do you know about God and his Son, Jesus?
"Bread that comes down from heaven and gives life"! What do you think about that?
How can we eat this bread?
What would you add to this story?
Who would like to bake some bread?
