"When you begin to think outside the box, you often become some other "leaders" lousy follower. That usually costs something" (Andy Rayner)

"Our guardian angels are bored." (Mike Foster)

It's where I feel I'm at these days. “In the second half of life, it is good just to be a part of the general dance. We do not have to stand out, make defining moves, or be better than anyone else on the dance floor. Life is more participatory than assertive, and there is no need for strong or further self-definition” (Falling Upward. Richard Rohr.120).

Meals Draw Us Together

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."

(Arthur Boers. The Way Is Made By Walking)
