Tasting the Bread of Life (John 6:35-40; LD 28)

It is easy for us to beat up on the immediate audience that meets with Christ and asks Christ for things that might seem silly to us.  In other words as Christians we might think that it is silly to ask Christ to provide bread.  In our minds this might be something that is so short sighted.  If we are honest, there are many things in our lives that miss the promises of Christ, the provision of the Gospel, and the ultimate peace of the kingdom.  How does the sacrament of communion help to refresh in us the life of the kingdom?  How does it call us to look beyond this world?
