Come to the Table – Home Ritual, Week 3

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, the intimacy of the kitchen table visual calls for a relational ritual. Join hands with your table mates. Ask the question: “Where have you experienced the love of God this week?” Allow time for ‘popcorn’ style answers from all at the table.

End with this prayer: “Loving God, you bless us with companions for the journey. Bless this meal as we come closer together in your name. Amen.”
