At Table With Jesus
A Lenten Sermon and Dinner Series, February 18-March 24
In first-century culture—Roman and Jewish—dining was political…and theological. So it’s no surprise that some of Jesus’ most teachable moments come during the act of eating together. With his Disciples. With people Jesus shouldn’t have been dining with…tax collectors and various “sinners”. In the presence of uninvited guests, ladies of questionable reputation, the religious and economic power elite. In this sermon series, we’ll be exploring how Jesus uses food and the act of dining as part of his teaching.
At Table Dinner Groups
During Lent and through the spring, you are invited to help us experience the kind of community where such teachable/learnable moments can happen, by hosting an At Table dinner. An At Table dinner is simply an opportunity to gather over a meal with fellow church members/friends, share conversation and stories, and perhaps also to invite each other to a deeper conversation about faith. All dinners are open invitation…anyone can join, up to the limit of spaces determined by the host, though hosts can feel free to invite people themselves. Hosts will be provided with a simple and light liturgy and conversation guide to help facilitate conviviality. Structure the dinner in any way you wish…do it potluck or provide the meal yourself; at your place, at the church, at a restaurant. Up to you!
