Affirmation of Faith: Bread of Life

Here’s an affirmation of faith inspired by John 6.  It was written by Alvin Franz Brightbill.

Affirmation of Faith
(inspired by John 6: 24-51)

I believe in God,
        the giver of grain and bread,
    and in Jesus Christ,
         the bread of life broken for us,
    and in the Holy Spirit,
        God's nourishing power in every grain and loaf.

I believe that Christ is to be leaven in us,
     so that we may offer the bread of life
     to the hungers of every human heart.
