Dear Christ Church,
Take a risk with me. The “capacity for meaningful action,” that’s how Crouch defines authority. And the “exposure to meaningful risk” is how he defines vulnerability in our parish Lenten book Great and Small. We need both to flourish as human being.
Will you take the vulnerable step, expose yourself to meaningful risk, by inviting a nonbeliever or unchurched/de-churched friend to an evening of delightful food and conversation about spiritual things?
We love to eat, and we love people! These two loves merge at “Come to the Table” March 30th. Reach out to your friends who don’t know Christ; join us for a fabulous dinner at a charming restaurant, and learn more about the broad spectrum of concerns related to a very simple part of our lives: food. We will talk about the relationship of food to beauty, justice, community and sustainability, and how these themes intersect with the Christian faith. Join us at Foodheads Restaurant to “dig in,” but in order to come you must bring a guest who has no church home.
This is the perfect event for the spiritually curious or even skeptical friend to be gently introduced to Christ and his people, especially if they enjoy cooking, hospitality, or growing their own food. But really, it’s for anyone who likes good food and good conversation. Who would you like to invite? See details below (rsvp required).
