Come to the Table: Lessons Learned from Mealtimes With Jesus
For most of us, approaching the holiday season means anticipating mealtimes with family and friends. Sometimes that anticipation is met with excitement and joy, and sometimes we anticipate less-than-exciting exchanges over dinner. Author Kayla Carthel invites you to consider some of the people with whom Jesus shared meals—and how it might transform how we view ourselves and others.
Come to the Table is a 9-day email series that will consider eight different mealtimes with Jesus recorded in the Gospel of Luke and will challenge and encourage you to remember and be grateful for the God who welcomes all to his table—the table where we eat and we are fully satisfied, where we drink and are no longer thirsty, and where God lavishes us in his unending grace and mercy forever and ever.
