2020 is a year to remember. Crisis reveals character, and we have the opportunity to learn and grow.
I believe that for many years my ignorance has been disguised as innocence. What I didn’t know was a wall that allowed me to hide behind it. We need to create time and space to break down walls and build bridges to those who don’t look like me and those who don’t look like you. I believe grace is the key to being a better me and that I’m often selfish and graceless, which seems to be a default human trait.
Grace is a learned behavior and transcends us above humanity. Grace is hard for the giver, but to the receiver, it is free. If accepted, grace changes both parties for the better. This miracle is called reconciliation. The only real picture I know of this is Jesus. Jesus came to earth as a man, eating and drinking. What could be more human than that? I believe that healing happens at the table; that food is grace. Could you be the secret sauce?
Now is the time to empower the community to build bridges for authentic living by promoting grace and healing.
The fact is, everyone eats. No matter what race, age, or background. What better platform can you think of to bring us together?
Let’s make room at the table for our neighbor. Let’s share our food, stories, and our heritage. Let us eat!
