we travel on through this first week of the season of Advent we
are glad to read these words from the prophet Isaiah -
“…the Lord will prepare for all peoples,
a banquet of rich food, a banquet of fine wines, of food rich
and juicy, of fine strained wines. “
This description will certainly make us think
of Christmas lunch to come our way but we do remember the box
at the back of our Church for the foodbank so that we can help
to ensure that everyone around us can have Christmas food in what
has been a difficult last two years.
We have a responsibility to enjoy the food and
drink we have and we have a responsibility to be thankful for
it. We have the responsibility of feeding others through our foodbank
donations and we have the responsibility to introduce other people
to Jesus who is the bread come down from heaven.
Food for the table and Food from the altar. Both
the earthly food and the heavenly food make the one blessing.
Both are necessary. For them both, we thank the Lord.
