Come and eat, come and eat
Bread of heaven, Given for you!
Come and Drink, Come and Drink
Wine eternal and true!
(refrain from a communion song written by my husband)
This morning we are inviting you to "come and eat" in more ways than one! Yes, it's the 11th hour preacher party: and there are lots of hungry and thirsty people out there. There are the hungry crowds in Matthew's gospel, the thirsty Israelites listening to Isaiah's message, and there's Jacob, hungry for a blessing from the stranger at the river. And then there's Paul: ok, I don't really know where to put him. Then there are lovely lovely invitations: Come to the waters, come and eat, come and share your bread with the hungry, come and incline your ear.
And there is an invitation from me today as well: Come and eat! Come and share your words, your wisdom, your worries, your prayers. Come and share your virtual food; we'll have a virtual feast today, and a real one someday, in the kingdom. All are welcome.
I have Good Earth Tea, Fair Trade Coffee, banana chocolate chip muffins and some REALLY GOOD Danish. I'll auto post early for those overseas, and then check in in the morning.
If you are hungry, come and eat!
