08 August 21 – Sunday 19B (COCU 51B)

(John 6:35:35, 41-51)
Their ancestors ate
manna in the wilderness,
God’s sustaining gift.

But some folk doubted
this Jesus, bread of heaven,
yet carpenter’s son.

Hungry and thirsty
others found hope in Jesus
and he lived in them.

Who is this Jesus,
who fills the empty-hearted,
quenches inner thirst?
