Pull up a chair, breathe in the aromas of the delicious meals, and take a look at the group of people around you.
There’s the recent divorcee, the young graduate figuring out life, and the elderly couple with failing health. We may have nothing in common with each other, but each of us has been personally sought out and invited by Jesus to gather at His table. So take a seat, open up your heart, and share in the highs and lows of our lives, as He covers us with His love.
