Our home life shapes how we live. With children, homes do well to be moving away from too much correction and moving toward freedom within limits, more praise, lots of conversation, and many signs of affection. The same movement between adults in the home will also work wonders. And the world will be a better place. Many are the works of the Spirit.
[A way to live John 6:51-58 from the readings in many churches for 8/16/15, the Twelfth Sunday after Pentecost. Jesus assures the crowd that he is giving them what they really need. He uses picture language to restate that the way of life he teaches will stay with and work for them all of their lives.]
