Product Description

Raised in a world of takeout and microwavable meals, like so many busy women Bri McKoy found herself utterly lost in the kitchen and nowhere near using her dining room table as an inviting place of community. However, as she learned how to more intentionally invite not just others, but also herself to the table every day, she noticed that the kitchen stopped feeling like a prision cell and more like a sanctuary. Gathering with others around the table, as Jesus often did during his time on earth, had the power to usher in deep relationship and a fuller understanding of God's love and grace. In Come and Eat, Bri invites readers on an adventure of food, faith and community to show how hospitality transforms the lives of others and ourselves.

Publisher's Description

Come with your brokenness, your celebration, and your worries, but most of all come and eat.

In today’s busy and often superficial world, we all crave something deeper and truer. Maybe it’s 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 God’s kingdom in their homes, Come and Eat offers recipes, tips, and questions to jumpstart conversation, while reminding us that fellowship in God’s 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.

    LIFE-DEFINING MOMENTS AT THE TABLE!

    Bri 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.
