Enough for every one

July 29th, 2020

“Today’s story from Matthew 14:13-21, where Jesus feeds a multitude in the desert, is the only miracle story that all four gospel writers tell, which means it must have been a very important story in the early church,” says Carla Pratt Keyes, pastor of Ginter Park Presbyterian Church, in Richmond, Virginia. What makes this story so important?

“Jesus chose to perform this miracle with his disciples’ help,” says Keyes. What does that tell us about how Jesus might feed the multitudes today?
