Manna

The Rev. Ellen Richardson

Manna as the sustaining gift of God is food that satisfies a deeper hunger—something stronger than the hunger in our bellies. Manna feeds our hunger to be loved—to be seen and known, to have our suffering recognized and our burdens shared. But more even than that, manna feeds our deeper hunger for the courage and compassion to love others—not with our leftovers, but with our first fruits—with sacrifice.
