BIG WRITE UP BELOW. BUT SUMMARY IS IT'S A KINGDOM-OF-GOD PIZZA PARTY.
FRIDAY JANUARY 26, DOORS OPEN AT 6. DINNER AT 6:30.
116 MACNAB ST S (WE RENT AT MACNAB PRESBYTERIAN)
Jesus was known for a lot of things: his teachings, healing power and stories made him famous. However there was one thing that Jesus was known for above all others:
When people thought of Jesus they thought about his table.
Jesus welcomed everyone to his table without exception, which people in his culture found confusing and even infuriating.
In Jesus time, eating with people was about way more than filling your belly. Who you ate with revealed who you accepted, who you welcomed, and who you thought was “in.”
When Jesus talks about meals, he talks about a feast big enough for anyone and everyone who is willing to come to the table, regardless of their history, ethnicity, age, health, or any other factor that the world uses to divide us.
Now it’s one thing to talk about this sort of meal, but it’s another thing to experience it. You can’t truly understand this sort of meal unless you, to quote a biblical poet, “taste and see that the Lord is good.”
We want to create a time and place where we can experience, if only for a few hours, the world God dreams of. A world where everyone is welcome, everyone is fed, and everyone is united at the table. We do this through the Love Feast.
The Love Feast is a free meal for anyone and everyone who is interested in food, community, and love. You don’t need to be religious, you don’t need to attend Eucharist Church, you don’t need to live downtown, and you don’t need to have it all together.
You just need to be wiling to show up and eat with people… and maybe help clear some dishes!
So join us for the Love Feast, and please invite some friends. The table is big enough for all!
