Eating & Drinking

When we are trying to figure out this thing called life we often don’t think something as ordinary as the Table might have some answers.  But Jesus spent a lot of time at the table.  Erwin Mc Mannus says, “If we are going to eat like Jesus we need to walk like Jesus otherwise we will end up looking like Buddha.”

For many people having a simple meal with Jesus meant they felt heard, seen, and loved.  It was where they experienced God for the first time.  It’s easy to dismiss the table as a life changing place for community. Yet for Jesus and those learning how to do life with Jesus the table became a central practice. We explored eating and drinking in our series “Dining Room Faith”.
