Theme: Believe

Food is essential for life; to eat well is a sign that one is healthy and growing. Today we are being challenged to evaluate objectively how we react and act when food is before our eyes.

Theme: All belongs to God

When we are mindful of the source of our essential commodities, then we begin to take care on how to utilize them.

Theme: Rejection

The annals of history are replete with cases of good people being rejected by those who label them. Sadly it is when we think we know so well that we start becoming vulnerable to faulty judgment.
