Some of the most profound encounters with Jesus happened around meals. He ate with a crowd, with friends, with sinners, with enemies trying to trap him, and with the disciples. Jesus clearly loved to eat with people. He liked it so much he was accused of being a glutton. Much of his teaching revolved around food. Some of his miracles were related to food. His life, ministry, and death was symbolized by the central item of a feast – the passover lamb.
In that spirit, we’re going to celebrate a feast together at our next worship gathering. We’ll break bread together, reflect on the life of Jesus, and consider his promises to be with those he sends out.
Come and be equipped and encouraged for life on mission. We’ll be gathering at the Wehmeier’s house on Saturday, July 7 at 6:00 pm. Send me a text (904)599-2889 or an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to let me know your coming. We want to be sure there’s enough for everyone and we’ll let you know how you can contribute to the feast!
A good friend of mine once told me that, insofar as possible, to never eat alone. It is a great opportunity for sharing, discipling and being discipled. Christ, as always, is our model here, as you illustrated.
Great quote! Sharing a meal makes it possible to share more of yourself!
