Neta Jackson has written another wonderful series! She has taken some very important social issues that we face today and made an amazing story. "Come To Tha Table" the second book of The Souled Out Sisters" series is a story that you can't put down till you find out what happens. Neta uses Jesus' words to open the eyes of her characters and readers to the needs of the poor, sick, single parents and the elderly. Her characters come alive with their challenges and emotions that we the reader have faced or might face. If you have read "The Yada Yada Prayer Group, & "The House of Hope series, you will meet some old friends from these books in this series. This will be a 'Must Read' for my Book club.
Kat may be new in her faith, but she's embraced the more radical implications of Christianity with reckless abandon. She invited Rochelleâ€”a homeless motherâ€”and her son to move in the apartment she shares with two other housemates. And she's finally found a practical way to channel her passion for healthy eating by starting a food pantry at the church.
Her feelings for Nick are getting harder to ignore. The fact that he's the interning pastor at SouledOut Community Church and one of her housemates makes it complicated enough. But with Rochelle showing interest in Nick as a father-figure for her son, their apartment is feeling way too small.
But not everyone thinks the food pantry is a good idea. When the woman she thought would be her biggest supporter just wants to "pray about it," Kat is forced to look deeper at her own motives. Only when she begins to look past the surface does she see people who are hungry and thirsty for more than just food and drink and realizes the deeper significance of inviting them to "come to the table."
It is a cute easy to read story. It is super easy to read. I read it in one afternoon, with a cup of tea while it rained outside. It is the second book in the series. I did not read the first book. I don't think it really matters. I was able to follow the story just fine without reading the first book.
