Come with your brokenness, your celebration, and your worries, but most of all come and eat.
In todays busy and often superficial world, we all crave something deeper and truer. Maybe its relationships that go beyond the surface or gatherings that allow for joy and pain. Bri McKoy tells us this is within reach! All we need is a table, open hearts, and a simple invitation: come and eat.
McKoy invites us to discover how a common dining-room table can be transformed into a place where brokenness falls away to reveal peace and fellowship. Whether the table is laid with bounty or with meager offerings, whether it is surrounded by the Body of Christ or homeless, broken souls, she shows us that healing begins when we say, "Come in. I may not know you, but I know your maker. And so I offer you my heart."
For all those who are hungry and craving more of Gods kingdom in their homes, Come and Eat offers recipes, tips, and questions to jumpstart conversation, while reminding us that fellowship in Gods love is always the most remembered, most cherished nourishment. Because when we make room for others, we make room for God, and our homes become a vibrant source of life, just as he means them to be.
Bri McKoy serves as the visionary and leader for Compassion Internationals blogger program. She writes regularly at OurSavoryLife.com, a food blog with recipes and stories from around her table, and is a regular contributor to the award-winning Compassion blog and GraceTable.org, a community blog about food and faith. Bri and her husband Jeremy live in Hermosa Beach, California.
LGHudson5 Stars Out Of 5LIFE-DEFINING MOMENTS AT THE TABLE!September 5, 2017LGHudsonQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Bri McKoy posted a photo on some promo materials with this quote that is also found in the book: I believe everyone has at least one life-defining moment that happens at a tableand probably many morebut we wont experience those powerful moments if were not showing up in the first place.
McKoy has done the world a great service by writing a book that challenges us to get out of our comfort zones and invite strangers to our tables. She doesn't just convict us and leave us. She has written a wonderful WHY, HOW-TO, WHAT NOT TO BE AFRAID OF that includes Prayers, Recipes (Shopping List included!) Conversation Starters, Games and other valuable information to make your opening your home and, more importantly, your TABLE, an incredible experience.
She explains that HOSPITALITY translated from the Greek means love of strangers. McKoy shares this verse to bring this point home: Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares. (Hebrews 13:2) She ends this passage with the following words which to me sums up her message of the entire book:
We look at someone whose background we might not know, whose trials weve not yet heard of, whose sins we have not yet seen, and we say, Come a little closer. You look familiar. You look like God."
If we choose to see everyone at our table through these eyes, what a difference we will make in how we love others by the simple act of having a meal together.
