Open Table Communities does not exist in one singular place. It does not point to one lone table, rather it points to the tables that already exist in every home, coffee shop, restaurant and company where people gather for a million different reasons. Our guess is that you have a table in your home too! It's a reminder that in all aspects of life, in every nook and cranny, you and I are invited to participate and fully engage in the family table of Jesus.
We are a community and network of people who have experienced something really good in following the way of Jesus and because it’s really that good - we simply want others to know about it, and journey with us in the same direction. That good thing center's all around Jesus and what His living, dying and rising from the dead tells us about God, the world we live in and our purpose for living in it.
Not only does God care about you, he also cares for the people around you and has invited all of us, irregardless of our background, color, creed, sexual orientation or socio-economic status to experience the freedom of grace and forgiveness when we pull up a seat at his table. We simply want to help people find their seat!
As the late Rachel Held Evans said, “This is what God's kingdom is like: a bunch of outcasts and oddballs gathered at a table, not because they are rich or worthy or good, but because they are hungry, because they said yes. And there's always room for more.”
We won't make any empty promises. We are a community of people just as broken as the next person, yet we have experienced and are continuing to experience the freedom and family that is found gathered at a table with other odd balls. The beautiful thing - their is alway room for one more!
Everything good in life starts with a conversation. So let’s have one! Send me a text, dial my number, spam my inbox or stalk me on facebook. Whatever you need to do, get ahold of me so we can have a conversation about you and all the wonderful, beautiful and amazing things that God is already doing in your life and about the table that is already set for you with a chair that has your name on it.
Stay open my friend!
