Table Hospitality

Eugene Peterson writes, “The table is the focal point of hospitality in all cultures. Many of the stories of Jesus are in conversation at meals.”

We see Jesus in table conversation in our readings of Mark’s gospel.

A good exercise might be to ask ourselves two questions.

First, “When did we last share a table with our neighbors?”

Second, “When did we last share a table with notorious sinners?”

Remember, Jesus said, “Follow me.”
