A37: The Ninth Sunday after Pentecost, Year A (2017)

Steve Eason

Steve Eason, former Pastor of Myers Park Presbyterian Church in Charlotte, North Carolina and former interim pastor at First Presbyterian Church in Richmond, Virginia, preaches a sermon on the feeding of the 5,000 from Matthew 14:13-21. Eason argues that the disciples’ original strategy is much like the church’s current strategy: “Send them away!” But Jesus has a different approach: “You give them something to eat.”
