This Sunday was the feeding of the five thousand; what jumped out at me was the 12 Apostles,
12 Baskets. I have heard this story all my life, its been preached on numerous times, but for some reason I never heard the 12/12 connection.
Surely the writer of the Gospel was making a point: We, like the 12, are being handed a "basket" to feed the hungry in our community; so how are we going to serve? Why should we serve? What hunger are we to help satisfy? How can we satisfy it?
