Over and again, meals inspired and drew us together in surprising ways.....
"As Christine Pohl writes: "A shared meal is the activity most posting tied to the reality of God's kingdom."
No surprise, then, that so many New Testament stories- parables of banquets, feasts in homes, the Last Supper, miracle feedings - revolve around food.
Twenty-five years ago, a friend named Bill told me something I still often recall:
"If you can read the gospels without getting hungry, you're not paying attention."
