An evening at the Table

Mark 4: 26-34

The Sower, Vincent Van Gogh, 1853-1890


This past Sunday we had our second evening worship service with dinner and Communion, called "An Evening at the Table".

We read the scripture from the gospel of Mark, then discussed around the dinner table these questions:

What brings you joy?  What makes that seed that God has planted within you come alive?

In what aspects of your life do you do ministry of some sort?

How would you describe your spiritual gifts?

As our invitation to the Table we watched this movie clip from Phenomenon, starring John Travolta:

We then shared plates of fruit with one another: apples, grapes, strawberries, blackberries, and pineapple.  This too is Christ's body broken for us, seeds of new life within, that become part of us.

We are the seeds of God's future.  Thanks be to God!
