Table Life: An Invitation to Everyday Discipleship
Welcome to Table Life! You are invited to join your brothers and sisters in Christ around the table to experience the everyday discipleship habits of eating together, dwelling in the word, listening, storytelling, and communion.
“Eating with others is holy work.” That theological conviction inspires a compelling invitation to everyday discipleship that is centered around shared meals. A life shaped by the table is one shaped by community. We share common dishes, and the narrative of our lives begins to intertwine as we listen to our tablemates’ stories and tell our own in turn. This new book presents a uniquely holistic approach to table fellowship as a spiritual discipline. Many table fellowship resources begin and end at the table, and many spiritual discipline resources limit the theological significance of the table to the Eucharist, led by clergy. Table Life is an intentional and interactive process of reflection and action, meals and mission, listening and storytelling, scripture and perspective, communion and neighboring. These disciplines connect the individual with Christ, the local church, their neighborhood, and their community contexts. Discover how participating in the spiritual disciplines of eating together, listening, storytelling, scripture reading, and communion in the context of a community you begin to be shaped into people who recognize and celebrate the presence of Christ in every aspect of life.
