Bread (Mark 8:1-21)

But in every city, in every country, in every culture the world has ever known there are those things we just kind of…get used to.  Maybe we don’t see them after awhile, or if we do, they start to feel normal, even ok.  Social divisions. Gender gaps. Racism. Injustice. Fear. They’re monsters, walking around our cities.  And lots of us just kind of feel powerless to change them.  So, we don’t.  We accept them.  We live among them.  They become normal after a while.  And when this is how we approach the seedy systems of our city, and the world?  Everything kind of stays the same as it’s always been.  Monsters become normal.  But what if God is inviting us to do something about it?
