Welcome to the Table
We are people who love God, who love communion and who love a good dinner table conversation. We are storytellers who love food. We're chefs, short-order cooks, soup stirrers, and birthday cake makers. We are kitchen people, and grill masters. We make gourmet breakfasts and serve cereal for dinner. We are passionate about faith and food. We're hungry for a table where grace is said and passed, like a warm basket full of rolls. Come break bread with us--we've saved you a seat.
Hospitality is the virtue which allows us to break through the narrowness of our own fears and to open our houses to the stranger, with the intuition that salvation comes to us in the form of a tired traveler. Hospitality makes anxious disciples into powerful witnesses, makes suspicious owners into generous givers, and makes close-minded sectarians into interested recipients of new ideas and insights.
