Five Loaves and Two Fishes

Five Loaves, Two Fishes

Here’s a poem written by my brother, if you are looking for something to fill some bulletin space that goes along with the Gosepl lesson for 8/9 according to our Lectionary.   (John 6:1-15)

He took five loaves of bread,
And just two fishes.
But could He really,
Multiply the dishes?

Then looking up to heaven,
He gave a silent thanks.
And He had the people sit,
By hundreds, and by ranks.

Upon the grassy hills,
The miracle occurred.
According to the Gospel,
According to God’s Word.

Jesus of Nazareth,
Fulfilled 5000 wishes,
With five loaves of bread,
And just two fishes.
