Come to the Table – Home Ritual, Week 2

Gathering with people about whom we care is one of the central marks of the Christian faith. Our worship series, “Come to the Table,” focuses on Jesus’ invitation to the table where we are challenged live God’s way: offering hospitality, embracing love, peace, grace and joy.
Throughout this series, we encourage you to commit to at least one family meal each week without electronics. If you normally eat alone, invite your “family” (of origin or choice) to share a meal with you.

This week, at the beginning of the meal, light a candle or candles. You could use a single pillar candle or a set of candle sticks. Consider lighting them in silence, with reverence and intention. 

End with this prayer: “Welcoming God, you prepared the table for us. Fill this feast with grace and love, and inspire us to make the same invitation to others. Amen.”
