Not by Bread Alone: A 31-Day series

Day twenty-five: We’re in this together

“Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts.” Acts 2:48

There are a lot of days that I eat in my home with a glad and sincere heart, friends and family gathered around my table.

Today was not one of those days.

I wasn’t home for breakfast – we had an early morning staff meeting at the library.

The boys refused to eat lunch, although they managed to get barbecue sauce everywhere anyway.

And by dinnertime, after dealing with an unplanned service call, internet connection issues, and the beginning of a migraine, we just decided to go out. (If you live in Ozark, kids eat free every day at Chappy’s!)

So tonight, I’m going to lean on the words of some great people who also have something to say about what it means to gather around the table together as followers of Christ.

Joy has been blogging all month about missional meals and what that means.

Sandy regularly shares about hospitality and things like overcoming your reluctance and inviting people into your home.

I loved the Nester‘s post about saying yes to guests even when your house is far from perfect.

And if you’re looking for something a little more substantial to read, I highly recommend Bread & Wine by Shauna Niequist, and the accompanying book study on (in)courage.
