Meeting Jesus at the Table




The gospels are full of stories of Jesus sharing meals with all kinds of people. He is invited to dinner parties, performs miracles at wedding receptions, and tells thought-provoking parables to the wealthy and the powerful. In all these settings, Jesus uses the table as an opportunity to impart wisdom, challenge preconceived notions, and call people to reimagine what God’s kingdom is really like. The table, then, becomes a symbol of unity and connection, as there is always room at God’s table for anyone and everyone, but it also serves as a symbol of formation and reorientation. Jesus calls us to the table so that he might mold us, shape us, fill us with the good news of the gospel, and send us out into the world.

During our Lenten journey this year, we will meet Jesus at the table through words of Scripture and the work of Cynthia Campbell and Christine Coy Fohr, whose title inspired the theme of this series. As we journey toward the cross together, our hope is that we, like the disciples, tax collectors, and Pharisees of Jesus’ day, will hear a fresh word of hope from God. In a world that is so divided and polarized, we need the power of God’s disruptive grace to break into our lives now more than ever. We need to be reminded of the unifying power of God’s table, along with its larger implications for God’s kingdom and how we are called to live as Christ’s disciples.
