The Call to Worship:

Leader: Jesus said: ‘I am the Bread of Life . . . whoever eats this Bread will always live.’
People: This is a tough teaching, too tough to swallow.
Leader: Jesus said: ‘Whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.’
People: This is a tough teaching, too tough to hear.
Leader: Jesus said to all he met: ‘Follow me.’
People: We have accepted Jesus, and seek to be faithful no matter how tough it is to follow him.
