My wonderful new daughter-in-law, Maggie Keller, wrote a awesome post on Something Holy about the Table. It reminded me of how my wife worked hard and long to finish our dining room table when we were first married. And how many thousands of meals around that table began with the invitation, “Come, Lord Jesus, be our guest. May these gifts to us be blessed. Quakers teach that every meal can be a meal of Holy Communion.
As I sit in a hospital room, waiting for my Mom’s hip surgery, I remember all the delicious meals she made. Our table may have been simple, but it was blessed. Thanks be to God.
