A lot of my work as Young Families Worker revolves around food! People love to eat and, regardless of age, they meet in the different groups, chat, play, worship and EAT.
Perhaps you have given up a type of food for Lent? Easter is a time to remember the last supper and to celebrate the risen Christ on Easter Day. Families and friends often get together over this festival to eat. Jesus throughout his ministry ate with anyone who would have him, identifying with them and accepting them for who they were. Sharing his love, peace and knowledge of God with those around him.
Through the ordinary act of sharing food, friendships can be made and strengthened: God’s love can be passed on. May God grant us the courage to talk about his love and friendship in the ordinary tines in life, perhaps when we are sharing food with one another.
