Jesus used the dinner table to befriend the stranger and the sinner to talk about the Kingdom of God. At the Last Supper he instructed his disciples to take the meal of love and forgiveness and re-enact it whenever they gathered. In this way Jesus embedded the Gospel into the dinner table theology. What this meant to these first followers was to gather the poor and the strangers to an abundant table, eat a meal together, and talk about Jesus. We believe that Jesus still likes having dinner with sinners. He just needs his followers to set the table.
The Jesus Table meets every Tuesday at 6:00 pm at the Hangar (417 S. 17th Street). Join us and experience the reality of Jesus with the sharing of dinner, bread, music and discussion. There's a place at the table for you.
