In this delightful collection of 52 meditations, Evelyn Bence reflects on gatherings at her table that have brought together friends, family, and neighbors. The anecdotal devotions ease the door ajar, gently inviting you to welcome others to your table. You see her planning a gathering, choosing recipes, thinking about how to make guests feel at ease.
For seasoned hosts, Bence provides encouragement and camaraderie. For novices, she offers kindly instruction laced with humor, realistic expectations, and recipes to try. Come along, she gracefully urges--make room at your table for others to share a meal or even a cup of coffee and dessert. Whether your table is humble or grand, you can reach out and enjoy offering hospitality to those around you.

What was your motivation behind this project? My parsonage parents entertained a great deal. I was watching and learning at their table. I recently realized that I had many anecdotes to share, my successes as well as failures, and the material could be an encouragement to others.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? There are people who make "having people over" look easy, but even for them it takes effort. I want to encourage readers to reach out, even offering a cup of coffee to strengthen our sense of community. "Practice hospitality," says the scriptures. We've gotten out of practice. Maybe it's time to reach out.
