Around the Table
with Dave Smith
“Few acts are more expressive of companionship than a shared meal…Someone with whom we share food is likely to be our friend, or well on the way to becoming one.”
– CAROLYN STEEL – Hungry City: How Food Shapes Our Lives
“Food connects. It connects us with family. It turns strangers into friends.”
TIM CHESTER – A Meal with Jesus
“In Luke’s Gospel Jesus is either going to a meal, at a meal, or coming from a meal.”
ROBERT KARRIS – Eating Your Way Through Luke’s Gospel
1 – Let’s connect with friends andchurch family around the table
2 – Let’s include our community around the table
philoxenia = love of the stranger
"When you combine a passion for Jesus with shared meals, you create potent gospel opportunities."
TIM CHESTER – A Meal with Jesus
3 – Let’s welcome Jesus around the table
“It’s good to be reminded that the table is a very ordinary place, a place so routine and everyday that it’s easily overlooked as a place of ministry…At its base, hospitality is about providing a space for God’s Spirit to move. Setting a table, cooking a meal, washing the dishes is the ministry of facilitation: providing a context in which people feel loved and welcome and where God’s Spirit can be at work in their lives…whatever it looks like, your own table is a sacred place.”
SIMON CARY HOLT – church minister and author
