a life in food under the banner of faith

Being welcomed around the table and a meal can mean the difference between surviving and thriving. Now I know.

I’ve long lived under the narrative that because I live in a tiny space, hosting the dinner parties of my dreams is not an option. But a few weeks ago, in the wake of a church workshop, I sent a dinner invitation to all fifty-some attendees and on the night of the meal, something in me arrived in a new place of possibility.
