Bring family and friends to worship at 10:30 a.m. Sunday, April 23, as we present our intergenerational spring musical, “Table for Five…Thousand! The Miracle of the Loaves and Fishes,” by Tom S. Long and Allen Pote.
Margot Olsen directs the retelling of this miracle, the only one (apart from the Resurrection) that is reported in all four gospels.
Our version includes details from all four, but particularly the narrative as it appears in John. One young boy with five loaves and two fishes is the catalyst for everything that follows. We don’t really know anything about the boy, other than his apparent willingness to share, but we know the results! It was an event so startling that members of the crowd wanted to proclaim Jesus as king.
Later, the event leads to an even greater revelation as Jesus tells his disciples: “I am the Bread of Life. Those who come to me will never never go hungry.”
Come hear this wonderful story and learn more about how God is with us in everything we do. There will be songs, movement, lines for the entire cast, and of course bread and fish for everyone.
