SCRIPTURE: 

Ephesians 4: 25 - 5:2:  Practical, ethical advise is given to the Christian Church in Ephesus, which is told to be imitators of Christ.

John 6: 35, 41-51:  People have trouble understanding what Jesus means when he says, "I am the Bread of Life, and so Jesus tries to explain. 


SERMON:  At Least a Symbol:  There are many disagreements over the meaning of the Sacrament of Communion, which has kept Christians separated for centuries.  Some argue about "Real Presence," while others say, "It is only a symbol."  But a symbol can communicate real presence, so do not dismiss something as "only a symbol."
