A Place At The Table - A Hunger Devotion

November 8, 2018

 

       Growing up, we think of sitting at the table as a place to receive nourishment or essentially food. The table is also a place to play games with your siblings, do homework, have a conversation with your mom, invite friends in for dinner or during Christmas, decorate cookies.  We are all welcome at this table and always have a chair open for whoever would like to join in.
       There is another table that we all have a place at. It is God’s table. When we think about God’s table, I know that it is for everyone. It doesn’t matter how old you seem whether you are a male or female, what color you are or how rich and poor you are. We are all deserving of the same amount of love and we all have a chair to sit in. We are fed with love, hope and faith. We are fed love by God’s love for us and allowing us to have a beautiful place to live on this earth. Hope is given to us by trusting God and allowing him to lead us to a good and happy place in life. Faith is fed to us by expressing our way of life, Jesus gave his life for our faith.
       I have been going to church since I was a little girl. I was baptized when I was three at Friendship Lutheran Church. It was a small congregation and was very welcoming. We all had a place at the “table” and I never questioned where I belonged. I was fed by receiving love from everyone that went to Friendship and welcomed me when I didn’t know I was being welcomed.  Everyone at the church felt like they had a place at the table and since we all have a place then all of us felt closer together.
       Once Friendship Lutheran Church closed, I started coming to LCR.  I was immediately welcomed.  My place at the table has given me many opportunities.  Youth Quake, Catechism, Confirmation, Sunday School, and recently, ELCA National Youth Gathering in Houston, just to name a few.
        Welcome to the “table” and may your “chair” continue to feed you every day.
