Friday photos – the feast of community

This image reflects the deep desire in my heart for community.  Technically, it’s not a very good picture but as an icon, a window into something more, I think it’s heart-achingly beautiful.   Friends gathered around a table, enjoying a simple but delicious meal, fed by the food and conversation, hearts gladdened by the wine and the company – with God, the gracious host, among us all.  It’s a picture of the heaven we’re made and meant for, a sampling of God’s goodness we can enjoy and share with others today.

For all my friends and family south of the border, I hope you had ample helpings of this taste of heaven in your Thanksgiving festivities.  For the rest of us, my prayer is that you’ll savour the same over a cup of coffee with friends or dinner with family.

    Amen…. and I would encourage us all to invite our neighbours to the Table to experience the Kingdom as well….

      Amen to that Karen! What a perfectly accessible witness to the goodness of God’s kingdom.

    That looks like a moment you and I shared a few months ago. A beautiful instant of community.

      Those meals were such beautiful moments – the din of conversation, the singing of blessing, the food – rich goodness all around.
