Give us this day our daily bread, Jesus taught us to pray. The bread that we break each day to keep body and soul together, but also, of course, the other bread: the bread that was given for us upon the Cross, the bread that we break each Sunday when we share in the gift of Eucharist.
In this time of unknowns, when so much of our daily life has been suspended, when we are unable to be together as a community or share in the Eucharist which feeds us so deeply, that bread may still point a way forward.
Daily Bread is a daily reflection, based on one of the readings appointed by the church for that day’s prayer. The reflections will take those readings in many directions: from scriptural meditations to creative or artistic responses to sharing elements of our daily lives. They will let us hear the voices in our congregation in a new way.

NOTE: Daily Bread began at the start of the COVID-19 lockdown in March 2020 and ended in December 2020.
